New week brings more scattered rain chances

AUSTIN (KXAN) — A weak front that had stalled across Central Texas this weekend finally made its way off the Gulf coast, but it’s been keeping the potential for rounds of showers and thunderstorms around into Monday. On the plus side, the increase in cloud cover will allow temperatures to remain much more comfortable, and likely below average for this time of year. However, once we lose the rain chances later this week, we’ll also see those temperatures heat right back up.

In the meantime, expect the potential for scattered showers and thunderstorms to remain all throughout Monday, then chances become slightly isolated on Tuesday.

Parts of San Saba and Llano counties have received 3-4″ of rain on Saturday. As for Sunday, over an inch fell SW of Cedar Park, with nearly 2″ of rain being picked up in southern Bastrop county. An additional 0.5-1″ of rain will be possible by tomorrow night.

Recent searing heat

Austin’s record high temperature for June 23rd was broken Friday afternoon when the mercury climbed to 104º at Camp Mabry, with a heat index reading of 112º. The previous record was 103º in 2009. A weather station near Rollingwood reached 107º, and Tow in Llano Country hit 108º.

Summer Fan Drive continues: Family Eldercare’s Summer Fan Drive event Fans from Fans Day was a great success last week, but more fans and monetary donations are still needed as summer is just beginning. KXAN is asking our viewers to help our neighbors in need with a donation of a brand new fan or a donation. Please click here for detailed information about this summer’s fan drive.
