AUSTIN (KXAN) — Breezy southerly winds warmed afternoon temperatures into the 70s Friday, and even warmer weather is forecast this weekend.
Afternoon highs in the middle to upper 70s are expected across Central Texas Saturday and Sunday. Morning lows will also be milder than normal, with lows in the upper 40s and low 50s in many areas Saturday morning, and upper 50s to low 60s Sunday morning.
Very pleasant temperatures are forecast for Saturday morning’s 11 a.m. start of the Chuy’s Children Giving to Children Parade. The temperature could reach 70 degrees by the beginning of the parade. Be sure to bring a new, unwrapped toy for Operation Blue Santa.
We are tracking a cold front that will arrive Monday, dropping temperatures below normal for a couple of days. High Monday will only reach the upper 50s to low 60s, and there will be a 20 percent chance of showers with the morning front. Tuesday will be a cool day, with highs in the 50s, but will be followed by much warmer weather Wednesday and Thursday. A chance of showers will return Thursday and Friday.
