Still too hot and way too dry

AUSTIN (KXAN) — Today’s normal high temperatures are in the upper 80s. But today through Monday will find our daytime maximums peaking in mostly the middle 90s.

Afternoon forecasts today and Wednesday will include only a 10% chance of a few spot showers with just a few hundredths of an inch measured. It will be followed by five days of dry weather.

The wind coming from the northeast lowered the dew points a touch but it still feels a bit humid this afternoon.

That’s how simple this short-range forecast is.

Taking a look at next week’s outlook we see some promise from the Climate Prediction Center. Their precipitation outlook indicates that Central Texas could see a little more rain that normal. It’s worth noting that the normal rainfall for all of October is 3.91″. The tenth month is the second wettest month during any year.

You would think this might translate in temperatures below normal, but, no. Warmer than normal temperatures during October 3rd to 9th means many highs peaking above the mid 80s.
