Our rain-making storm system has moved away, now impacting the eastern U.S. Locally, it's a dry weather pattern for a few days with plenty of sunshine.
Thanks to low humidity, Wednesday morning began with chilly temps, including a record low of 54 at Austin-Bergstrom. But, dry air drastically warms during the day as we had highs in the mid 80s. The May 24th average is 88, so mid 80s ain't so bad.
A pleasant night and morning is in store with clear skies and lows around sunrise in the lower half of the 60s.
South winds increase to 10-20 mph Thursday. That, along with more sunshine, will make for a hot one with highs in the lower half of the 90s!
The 90s continue Friday and into the weekend. And, with higher humidity, it'll feel even hotter.
Our next storm chance comes Sunday with a weak cold front moving in from the north, and likely stalling out for a few days. Yes, it may be a wet Memorial Day. As it looks now, there will be some high rain totals in the vicinity of the stalled front. NOAA's 7 Day Rain Outlook suggests possible 1-2"+ rain totals in our area.

Peak of Severe Season... We're at the traditional peak of the spring storm season, and it looks like our weather will once again be active next week. Remember: when thunder roars, head indoors! There's no safe place to be outdoors during a thunderstorm as all thunderstorms produce lightning. Any of the storms that develop this week in Texas could quickly become strong to severe. For now, the biggest threats appear to be heavy downpours, strong storm winds, sizable hail and possible tornadoes. We don't want to scare you, just prepare you for what might occur.
