AUSTIN (KXAN) — Highs again today were kept trapped in the middle 50’s across Central Texas thanks to mainly cloudy skies. The clouds managed to stay with us, however, the late week wet weather did not. For the first time in three days our rain gauges stayed dry. You can expect the trend of dry days to continue as we look ahead, however, the clouds don’t have much gas left in the tank.
Tonight will feature overcast skies and lows in the 40’s so take along the jacket if you’re headed to the Trail of Lights. Sunday will start out cloudy, but with high pressure building in and winds turning into the southeast, we expect to see some late day sun and as a result, slightly warmer temperatures. Our average this time of year is 62 degrees, and it looks like we’ll hit that mark on Sunday afternoon.
Other than a weak cold front early Tuesday, a very quiet weather pattern will continue into Christmas Day. Temperatures are expected to approach 70 degrees by Christmas, but an unsettled weather pattern will return between Christmas and New Year’s Day, bringing wetter and colder than normal weather back to Central Texas.
