I’m expecting today to be warm and humid with little or no rainfall in the forecast locally. The best chance of rain will stay to our north, toward Abilene, and also to our southwest, near Del Rio.
Tropical Cyclone Nate will possibly become a hurricane today. This system will post no direct impact on the Hill Country. If anything, it will actually dry us out a bit Saturday and Sunday.
Today should start out mostly cloudy. Skies will become partly sunny during the day. A stray shower is possible, but highly unlikely. High temperatures will climb into the middle 80s. Humidity levels remain high, and light southerly winds will prevail.
Weather for tonight’s football games across the area should be decent. Fair to partly cloudy skies are expected. Temperatures will fall into the lower and middle 70s after sunset, and light winds are expected.
It should be a few degrees cooler overnight. A few clouds will develop after midnight, and lows will range from the middle to upper 60s.
A weak frontal boundary will switch winds to the northwest Saturday. Stray showers are possible with this boundary. Highs should end up in the lower to middle 80s.
A cold front is still expected to cross the region late Monday night or Tuesday. Timing and temperatures remain to be worked out. ... Stay tuned.
