Winter-like chill as temps plummet overnight
AUSTIN (KXAN) — As rain wraps up and dry, cooler air moves in, our focus turns to the spectacular autumn weather in the forecast through Thursday. Wednesday morning will be our coldest morning of the week as low temperatures fall into the upper 30s to lower 40s. Some less-populated rural creek valleys may see a first freeze with temperatures as cold as 32 degrees.
South winds return Thursday, warming afternoon highs back above seasonal norms and bringing back higher humidity for the Formula 1 U.S. Grand Prix this weekend. The weekend forecast looks warm and windy, but dry at this time. Our next rainmaker is on the horizon early next week.
