Forecast: hot, dry stretch ahead

Here are the latest updates from the KVUE Storm Team.

AUSTIN, Texas — Storms have cleared and another dry stretch of weather is settling in. We did manage to enjoy a beautiful Tuesday with high temperatures in the mid- to low 80s across Central Texas. This brought us our fourth day of at or below average temperatures for the month of May so far. 

Wednesday night will be pleasant and cool with lows near 60 degrees. Some spots across the Hill Country may drop to the upper 40s thanks to low humidity that has settled in allowing for radiational cooling to occur overnight. 

The cool May-like temperatures are short lived with 90s returning Thursday. As a matter of fact, atmospheric conditions are expected to be favorable for producing high levels of ozone air pollution in the Austin area on Thursday, therefore the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has issued an Ozone Action Day. 

We trend even hotter through the Memorial Day weekend. Saturday and Sunday will bring plenty of sunshine with highs in the mid-90s. An early look ahead to Memorial Day shows a partly sunny sky, but otherwise a dry day with highs around 95 degrees. 

Cloud cover may increase slightly early next week with a small chance for rain by Tuesday. However, the overall pattern continues to look hot and mainly dry. 

WEDNESDAY NIGHT:
Mostly clear. Cool night. Northwest wind at 5 mph.
LOW: 60

THURSDAY:
Sunny and hot. Southwest wind at 5 to 10 mph.
HIGH: 91

FRIDAY:
Sunny and hotter. Southwest wind at 5 to 10 mph.
HIGH: 93
