Chance of showers Monday, then breezy afternoon in Austin


Monday forecast for Austin: Forecasters are calling for a 40 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms in Austin on Monday ahead of a Pacific cold front expected to move through the area late in the morning.

National Weather Service meteorologist Bob Fogarty said most rainfall in the area had pushed to the east of Austin by 6 a.m., but chances for scattered storms dropping a few hundredths of an inch are still possible.

Skies are expected to gradually clear through the morning before the front arrives between 9 a.m. and 10 a.m., bringing gusting winds of up to 25 mph.

“It’s probably going to be a pretty breezy afternoon,” Fogarty said. “It’s not a really big temperature change coming. Actually, today could get close to 80.”

The combination of wind and dry air coming into the area will elevate the threat for fires across the region, but authorities said winds should die down after sunset.

Austin should be under clear skies through the rest of the week, and temperatures should gradually drop through the weekend.

According to the weather service, daytime highs will fall into the mid-60s on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, then dip even lower into the 50s on Saturday and Sunday.

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

Tuesday: Mostly sunny with a high around 74 degrees.

Wednesday: Sunny with a high near 65 degrees.

Thursday: Sunny with a high near 65 degrees.

Friday: Partly sunny with a high near 63 degrees.
