Monday forecast for Austin: Forecasters are calling for warmer temperatures in Austin on Monday and through the rest of the week after a run of frigid temperatures over the weekend.

According to the National Weather Service, daytime highs in the Austin metro area should reach around 64 degrees on Monday.

On Tuesday, temperatures will rise to around 76 degrees, then to 78 degrees on Wednesday – about 17 degrees above normal and only 7 degrees shy of the daily heat record.

The swing to warmer weather comes after lows in Austin dipped to into the 20s and teens on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Chances for showers and thunderstorms will likely return to the area on Thursday and increase into the weekend.

According to the weather service, Thursday will see a 20 percent chance of showers, followed by a 50 percent chance on Friday and Saturday.

Temperatures should reach highs in the 70s through Friday, but more chilly conditions will return over the weekend, though meteorologists are not expecting a return to freezing conditions.

Highs are expected to reach the 50s on from Friday night through Sunday.

Here’s a look at the forecast through the week:

  • Tuesday: Partly sunny with a high near 76 degrees.
  • Wednesday: Mostly sunny with a high near 78 degrees.
  • Thursday: Partly sunny with a 20 percent chance for rain.
