A hot weekend is expected across the Hill Country as high pressure builds across the region.

Relief arrives Monday thanks to another late season cold front.

Partly to mostly sunny skies are in the forecast Saturday. We can expect toasty daytime highs between 94 and 97 degrees. Heat index values will range from 95 to 100 degrees. Southeast winds average 5 to 15 mph.

Fair skies continue Saturday night. I expect no rainfall. It remains warm with overnight lows in the upper 60s to lower 70s. Southeast winds continue overnight with patchy low clouds possible by daybreak Sunday.

Humidity values should be higher Sunday. It remains very hot and uncomfortable with high temperatures in the middle 90s. Heat index values will approach or slightly exceed 100 degrees Sunday afternoon.

The heat index value is what it will feel like to your body.

Use plenty of sunscreen this weekend if you are outdoors. 

A cold front brings a chance of storms late Sunday night into Monday. Some of the storms could become severe with gusty winds and hail.

Monday will be cooler behind the frontal boundary. Skies remain partly to mostly cloudy with a chance of showers and thunderstorms. Highs top out in the lower to middle 80s with north winds in the forecast.

Cooler than average temperatures are expected through Thursday of next week with periodic opportunities for showers and thunderstorms.
