The remaining days of the week are going to feature clear skies with high temperatures hovering around 85 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.
It all starts with a sunny, 75-degree temperatures this morning. Wind gusts could get as high as 20 mph, with the low temperature around 60 degrees.
“A cold front is already moving into Texas as we speak, from Oklahoma to Texas,” NWS meteorologist Juan Hernandez said Tuesday morning.
The wind will ease up for Thursday, and most Central Texans will see 10 mph gusts. It will still be sunny with a high temperature of 86 degrees. The temperature will cool a low of 60 degrees at night.
Friday will be more of the same, according to NWS. The day will be sunny with a high around 85, and the evening will have a low of 61 degrees. Saturday has a similar forecast, and Sunday will be the hottest day of the week, reaching 87 degrees.
“You’ll really feel the cooler air Wednesday night into Thursday morning,” Hernandez said. “The pleasant weather will stick around through next week.”
This week of ideal weather comes on the back end of thunderstorm warning. Bell County was listed among the nearly 50 counties with a hazardous weather outlook.
The worst of the heat is over, Hernandez said. In Waco, the average temperature from just a week ago was 94 degrees. This week, it’s in the mid-80s.
“We’re on a downward trend as we get closer to fall, and eventually, into winter,” Hernandez said. “Those average high temperatures drop below 90 degrees by mid-to-late September.”
