Monday Heat, Storms; Cooler, Quieter Days Ahead

The second cold front in as many days is working its way into our region from the west to start the work week today. Warm humid air is trickling into the area ahead of it, and while it won’t be quite as toasty or muggy as Sunday’s weather it still looks to create an unstable […]

A Stormy Sunday?

Our comfy air  at the end of last week is long gone and replacing it is a much more humid and potentially hottest air mass of the season.  Highs locally were kept down Saturday thanks to clouds from a decaying thunderstorm complex that passed to our south earlier in the day.  Highs out west topped […]

We didn’t have any warnings in the area Saturday night and other than some gusty winds, heavy rain, and some ominous clouds, things stayed pretty tame relatively speaking. Behind a cold front that will pass by Sunday morning, drier air will push in allowing the sun to come out Sunday morning and through the early […]

A stormy, humid weekend may be ahead of us

After a relatively quiet work week, it looks like our weekend is looking a bit stormy and possibly rather soggy. A storm system from the west is going to work to pull in extra moisture ahead of its arrival over the next couple of days, setting us up for some abundant and even, in some cases, excessive […]

Today is June 17th and if you’ve lived here for more than 5 years you know that date is significant in terms of weather.  In 2009 Austin was affected by a tornado and one year later in 2010, the state of Minnesota saw its largest tornado outbreak in its history.  Once again on June, 17th […]
