Austin Gears Up for Warm Weekend Followed by Potential Wednesday Cold FrontSource: National Weather Service

Austin residents can anticipate a warm weekend according to the latest forecasts. After an unseasonably hot Thursday that peaked at 88 degrees, a minor cool front is bringing slightly cooler but still above-average temperatures. The National Weather Service reports today's sunny skies will see a high near 76, with a northerly breeze of up to 20 mph. National Weather Service predicts that conditions tonight will be partly cloudy with lows around 49 degrees.

After a brisk Friday morning, conditions are expected to remain "pleasant" through the day with sunny skies and mid-70 temps. As noted by KVUE, a quick warming trend will pick back up over the weekend, and temperatures are expected to hit the 80-degree mark by Sunday. Residents can anticipate a steady climb with highs reaching the mid to upper 80s by early next week.

A stronger cold front looms around the next Wednesday, according to forecasters. This shift could precipitate isolated rain chances and might drive temperatures back down to or slightly below the seasonal average. The intricacies of this front remain unclear, but updates are promised as the week progresses.

The aforementioned sunny disposition of the weekend does not, unfortunately, extend to next week's entire forecast. "We are now tracking the potential for a stronger cold front around Wednesday of next week," states KVUE. This means that while next Monday and Tuesday will flirt with temperatures as high as 86, come midweek, we might be rummaging for light jackets amidst cooler showers.
