AUSTIN (KXAN) — The pleasant autumn weather pattern that has been in place for the last week isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Warm and mostly dry weather is forecast to continue for the foreseeable future, and temperatures will get even warmer by the weekend.
An area of low pressure over northern Mexico will weaken as it moves slowly east, unable to dislodge a fair-weather high pressure system over our area. Rain chances will remain less than 10 percent locally as the high pressure wins out.
The ridge of high pressure aloft will strengthen late this week, warming temperatures into the upper 80s this weekend. Some locations may even record high temperatures in the low 90s. Between now and then, seasonal temperatures are expected, with morning lows in the upper 50s to lower 60s and highs in the lower to middle 80s.
The Climate Prediction Center’s 8-14 day outlooks indicate drier and warmer than normal weather is likely into early November.
