Friday forecast for Austin: Sunshine returns to the Austin metro area on Friday as temperatures are expected to climb to near 82. Northeast winds of 5 to 10 mph will continue to keep the skies clear but also the humidity levels low, which will allow nighttime temperatures to sink to a chilly 57 degrees.

The weekend will start sunny on Saturday as temperatures again are expected to reach near 82, but with southeast winds returning in the afternoon, clouds will increase in the evening.

With the increased cloudiness and more humidity being brought in by the southeast winds, a 30 percent chance of rain returns to the forecast on Sunday. At night, the cloud cover and mugginess will trap radiant heat and keep evening temperatures warmer to around 66 degrees.

By Monday, sunshine makes a partial comeback as temperatures start inching toward a more summer-like high near 86 degrees. South winds around 10 mph will bring more humidity, making the skies at night mostly cloudy but with a low temperature around 69.
