AUSTIN, Texas — Happy Monday!
We experienced a toasty, rather warm weekend across Central Texas, but we can expect cooler conditions for your workweek. A cold front moved through Central Texas Monday morning and is bring drier air to the region.
Afternoon high temperatures on Monday should reach the lower 90s and upper 80s as the front continues to move south. The front will also bring north-northeasterly winds at 5 to 15 mph with gusts around 20 mph. These breezy conditions, combined with drier air, will lead to elevated fire weather concerns Monday afternoon. We can expect similar afternoon high temperatures in the upper 80s to lower 90s every day this week with plenty of sunshine.
If you're ready for it to feel like fall, then you'll enjoy our overnight and morning temperatures. The drier air will allow for more efficient cooling each evening, leading temperatures to drop into the 50s and lower 60s.
We are also continuing to track the tropics and all developments with Ian. The system officially upgraded to a Category 1 hurricane early Monday morning. Forecast models predict Ian will rapidly strengthen to a major hurricane by Tuesday.
Hurricane Warnings are currently in effect for Grand Cayman and portions of Cuba. Hurricane and Tropical Storm watches are in effect for portions of Florida. The most recent forecast calls for possible landfall somewhere on the western side of Florida later in the workweek.
We'll continue to keep a close eye on the forecast over the coming days.
Mostly sunny and not as hot. North-northeast wind at 5-15 mph with gusts around 20 mph.
Mostly clear and cooler. North-northeast wind at 5-10 mph with gusts around 20 mph.
Sunny and warm. Northeast wind at 5-10 mph.
