It was a stormy start to the workweek for us, but the next couple of days will feature fantastic weather. 

Our air is crisp and dry thanks to the cold front that rolled through early Wednesday. Due to dry air and mostly clear skies, our temperatures are expected to fall into the 50s and upper 40s this morning. It will be nice and chilly to start the day, so make sure your kids take a sweater to school. Mostly sunny skies and dry air will promote a quick warm up this afternoon. Temperatures should top out in the mid to upper 70s. We're not expecting many changes on Friday besides an increase in cloud cover and slightly warmer temperatures. There was be some isolated storms in the evening hours Friday, but we're more concerned with storm chances heading into the weekend. 

Tropical Storm Sergio is expected to push northeast across Mexico over the next couple of days. The remnant low associated with Sergio looks to enter West Texas Saturday morning. By the afternoon, this low-pressure system will drift northeast across North & possibly Central Texas. Scattered showers and storms will be possible as the system rolls through. At this point, there's at least an isolated chance for severe weather for us here in Central Texas. We'll get a better idea about our severe weather threat over the next 24 to 48 hours.

A cold front will also surge across Central Texas Sunday, which will bring a rather significant cooldown and scattered storms that could linger through early next week. Highs are expected to drop into the 60s by Monday, with overnight lows in the 40s and 50s.
