The chance of rain increases for Saturday as another shot of cold air rushes in
A cold rain is likely in the Hill Country to start the weekend.
AUSTIN, Texas – If you love snuggling up under a blanket at home all weekend, this forecast is for you!
While we expect it to be dry for Wednesday and Thursday (and a bit milder, we might add), we could start to see changes as we move towards Friday.
This is due to a coastal low currently in Campeche Bay that will move up the east coast of Mexico and give us some chances of rain, particularly for Saturday.
Additionally, an arctic frontal border will arrive from the north and arrive on Friday, slowing slightly throughout the day. This could allow some moisture from the aforementioned low to arrive in central Texas, resulting in a slight chance of rain.
As the front pulls through on Saturday and the center of the coastal low is closer to the Texas coast, we should see some more extended showers as the atmosphere would be too cold to allow for more severe thunderstorms. These storms are not expected to be severe.
There is a small caveat though, as some models printed out a few snowflakes for parts of the Hill Country. Let’s face it, this won’t have any accumulation or travel implications, but it will be something that will be a sight to behold and no more than that. Because the Hill Country’s highest elevations could dip to the upper 30s, especially in the morning hours, which, in view of the top and surface temperatures, opens the door to a possible change.
After that we will be mainly dry for Sunday and early next week with highs returning to the 50’s before further chances of rain for Thanksgiving and Black Friday. For those looking for a warming trend, models are also printing above-average temperatures for primarily the weekend after Thanksgiving, but some models are printing this as early as Black Friday.
