A little more warmth, then a cold(er) snap

Bob Rose, the weather guru for the Lower Colorado River Authority, notes in a Tuesday blog post that the temperature in Austin in February has averaged 3.5 degrees above normal. That’ll continue through this weekend, more than likely.

But, Rose adds, forecasts are calling for a cold front to come in Sunday. And that one, unlike a few recent ones, should bring moisture with it. That means some chance of rain Sunday, with thunderstorms and light rain expected Sunday night and Monday. Then a cold front traveling south should clear the skies out and plunge the area’s highs into the (gasp!) 60s.

By the way, the Pope’s visit to Mexico wrapped up on Wednesday. On Thursday he should be back home in the world’s tiniest nation. Just how did the world end up with that tiny nation? This delightful little video explains. Happy Thursday!
