AUSTIN (KXAN) – Another clear and calm start to the day after our 7. 100 degree day on Saturday. Although it’s comfortable now, it will not be that long while our September sizzle continues.
Temperatures will flirt with 100 degrees again today. Even if we do not hit the century, our heights will certainly be above our seasonal average of 94 degrees.
Outflows from thunderstorms in North Texas this morning arrive in central Texas this afternoon, igniting isolated showers and storms. Depending on how quickly these limits arrive, it can shave a few degrees from our expected altitude of 99 degrees. Showers and thunderstorms are a bit more likely on Monday.
Most stay dry, so do not cancel the plans you may have, just keep an eye on the sky and get a place indoors to retreat to if lightning is nearby.
September heat continues
Elevations Saturday in Austin at Camp Mabry reached 100 degrees, making it the seventh three-digit day in Austin this year.
We are in the middle of one of the hottest weekends of the year.
The hottest weekend so far in 2021 was July 31-1. August. We’ll have to be hotter than 99 degrees on Sunday to make THIS weekend the hottest of the year.
We still see an area of potential tropical development in the Gulf of Mexico. The National Hurricane Center gives it a 30% chance of development.
Most indications preserve any development to the east over the next week, but we will continue to keep up.
