AUSTIN (KXAN) — Dry, pleasant weather is forecast through at least the next seven days.
An area of low pressure pulling out of the Desert Southwest is weakening considerably as it moves slowly east, bumping into a fair-weather high pressure system over our area. Rain chances will remain less than 10 percent locally as the high pressure wins out.
Temperatures are forecast to remain slightly warmer than mid-October normals, with morning lows in the upper 50s to lower 60s and afternoon highs in the middle to upper 80s each day.
The Climate Prediction Center’s 6-10 day outlook indicates drier than normal weather likely continuing through October 29th, and the 8-14 day temperature outlook says we will experience warmer than normal weather through the next two weeks.
We are closely monitoring a low pressure system in the Gulf of Mexico that may become the next tropical system of the Atlantic hurricane season. Whether or not the storm develops, however, we will not receive any drought busting rains as the forecast track takes it eastward towards Florida later this week.
