Tuesday forecast for Austin: Grab your winter coats before you head out the door — and say goodbye to that sunshine and the warm spring-like temperatures we’ve seen in the past few days. A winter chill settles in for the next two days.

A cold front swept through the Austin metro area overnight, leaving blustery winds in its wake. Folks are waking up to gusts as high as 25 mph and cloudy skies. Temperatures will drop to the mid-40s before rising to the mid-50s again later in the day. The nighttime low is expected to drop to around 37, according to the National Weather Service.

On Wednesday, the sunshine returns, forecasters say, but the daily peak temperatures will remain in the mid- to upper 50s. At night, the skies remain clear but the overnight low will fall to near-freezing temperatures around 33.

By Thursday the above-normal warmth makes a comeback, as high temperatures will rise to near 67 under sunny skies, forecaster say. At night, the outlook calls for clear skies with a low around 40.

The weekend outlook promises to be warmer and sunnier than anything we’ve seen all month: Friday’s high is expected to be near 69; Saturday’s high could be near 73 and Sunday’s temperatures could approach 80.
