AUSTIN (KXAN) — A weak cold front dropped temperatures back to near normal Wednesday, but a stronger front is on the way. The next cold front is forecast to arrive late Thursday night, and bring the coolest weather we have seen in October.
While the afternoons will be super, chilly late nights and early mornings are expected Friday through Sunday morning, as low temperatures fall into the 40s. Highs of 75 degrees Friday, 70 degrees Saturday, and 74 degrees Sunday will mean very pleasant weather for much of the day, and for most festivities associated with Halloween, and the Formula One race.
The front early Friday morning is only forecast to bring a very slight chance of a rain shower. We’ll have to wait until at least Monday or Tuesday for our next really good shot of rainfall. Starting early next week, a storm system will combine with Pacific moisture, and may bring some fairly widespread showers and thunderstorms Monday through Wednesday morning.
KXAN is a sponsor of Circuit of the Americas Fan Fest, which will occur all weekend downtown, and the weather looks terrific for all the related festivities, though the evenings will be a bit cool Friday and Saturday.
Daylight Saving Time will end at 2 a.m. Sunday morning Nov. 2nd, when we will set our clocks back one hour.
