Forecast: Stretch of record breaking heat continues; daily rain chances ahead

Here are the latest updates from the KVUE Storm Team.

AUSTIN, Texas — Another day of record breaking heat in the books! We hit 99 degrees at Camp Mabry Tuesday afternoon. This breaks the daily record of 96 degrees set back in 1925. This also keeps us on track for the hottest May on record so far. 

Unfortunately, we continue to trend warmer until some relief finally arrives this weekend. We're forecasting our first triple-digit day Wednesday afternoon. If this does happen, we will yet again break the daily record of 97 degrees. 

Upper 90s to triple digits continue into late week, but we are now monitoring the potential for some changes by the weekend. We'll be monitoring the potential for isolated showers and storms on Thursday and Friday. Some storms on Friday could be on the stronger side, so we will continue to monitor closely.

A cold front slides into Central Texas on Saturday with another opportunity for some rain and storms. The cold front will finally bring some relief to this heat as temperatures drop into the lower 90s for Saturday. Temperatures cool even further for Sunday with afternoon highs in the mid-80s. 

Partly cloudy skies and a bit breezy. South wind at 5 to 15 mph with gusts up to 25 mph.
