Weather forecast

AUSTIN (KXAN) — Another potent storm system is spinning into the Plains states today, dragging a cold front behind it that is set to move through our area tonight.

Ahead of the front, expect a warm, breezy, mostly cloudy day. The clouds should limit instability in the atmosphere, meaning we don’t expect more than a few light showers.

After sundown tonight, the cold front will be the spark needed to form more powerful thunderstorms. From Austin eastward, a few storms overnight may turn briefly severe with large hail and damaging winds.

Rain totals for most areas will be light, but more than an inch is possible in some of the stronger storm cells east of I-35.

Skies will clear behind the front by mid-morning tomorrow, followed by pleasant weather through Thanksgiving Day. Another front will move through Friday, bringing a slight chance for showers, but otherwise, mostly nice weather is expected through the holiday weekend.

La Niña has formed

The Climate Prediction Center says a La Niña pattern has developed in the Pacific Ocean. As a result, their latest winter outlooks predict warmer and drier than normal conditions from December through February.

Our research, however, as found that we may be in store for some cold surprises this winter.
