Enjoy last day of above-normal heat in Austin before chilly weekend


Tuesday forecast for Austin: Enjoy the unseasonably warm air while you can, Central Texas. With forecasters expecting temperatures to peak in the mid-70s, Tuesday’s the day the spend as much time outside before things turn chilly this weekend.

Although Tuesday’s anticipated high of 77 at Camp Mabry in Central Austin will be nowhere near the daily heat record of 84 set in 1991, the temperature will be about 10 degrees warmer than normal, according to National

Northwest winds of 5 to 10 mph under mostly sunny skies will continue to keep conditions dry and mild.

But without the heat-trapping clouds or humidity at night, evening temperatures are expected to drop to around 48 degrees, which is actually close to normal for this time of year.

Temperatures for the rest of the work week start to look more like normal for the first week of December. On Wednesday, the last day of November, high temperatures should peak at a seasonal 66 degrees before plunging to a low of 40, according to the weather service.

Thursday’s forecast looks similar to Wednesday’s, with sunny skies and high of 67. But clouds will increase at night as southeast winds pick up to around 5 mph and bring in additional moisture.

Friday’s forecast includes a 30 percent chance of showers under mostly cloudy skies and a high near 64. Rain chances ramp up to 60 percent at night.

By Saturday, forecasters say daily peak temperatures will top out near 54 as rain chances increase to 70 percent. The nighttime low is expected to be around 44 degrees.

Forecasters expect Sunday to look a lot like Saturday, with a continuing chance of rain, highs in the mid-50s and nighttime temperatures bottoming out in the lower 40s.
