Colder air filters in Wednesday through the weekend with daily highs in the upper 40s to low 50s and nightly lows in the upper 20s to low 30s.
Wednesday could well be one of those "upside-down" temperature days, when the mornings are warmer than the afternoons. Plus, it's been over a month since we've had more than a few hundreths of an inch of rain in downtown Austin. Breezy, with a west wind 14 to 22 miles per hour. The temperature profile of the atmosphere early Friday could be borderline cold enough to support a few wet snowflakes mixing in with the showers.
After tonight's storm passage, the weather pattern changes to cooler temperatures with continued chances for unsettled weather, spelling chances for rain and snow ahead. Once the cold front passes Tuesday morning, our high temperature will likely be very close to our low temperature. South winds will gust as high as 35 miles per hour. Thursday night, mostly cloudy, with a low around 22.
