CENTRAL TEXAS — It has been a warm stretch of days lately here in Central Texas, but some major changes arrive today.

A sharp cold front will work through Central Texas during the early morning hours bringing much cooler air. Our high temperatures will occur before the sun comes up as we start in the 60s and the 70s. A few storms will be possible along the front, with temperatures quickly falling into the 50s behind it. Winds will be out of the north at 15-25 mph with gusts up to 30, so it will be smart to tie down loose items before heading out the door!

Despite quickly clearing skies and sunshine, afternoon temperatures will stay in the upper 50s. As winds relax overnight, the coldest air settles in, and we will find ourselves in the 30s. High temperatures Tuesday will be much closer to normal in the low 60s. This is a short-lived cool down though as we will bring back warm and humid air for the second part of the week. Highs will approach near-record levels in the mid-80s! Another cold front looks to arrive for the weekend, bringing us back down to normal. Stay tuned!
