Tuesday forecast for Austin: The morning is starting off quite chilly for the third day in May, but temperatures are expected to climb to the mid-70s as Tuesday kicks off a string of sunny days, according to the National Weather Service. As of 6 a.m. at Camp Mabry in Central Austin, it was 56 degrees, which is about five degrees cooler than the normal low for this time of year.
Tuesday’s outlook calls for sunshine and a mild high temperature near 76. At night, forecasters expect clear skies and temperatures to drop to around 54 degrees.
Wednesday will also be sunny, but much warmer, with temperatures rising to near 83 degrees, the weather service says. Low humidity and dry air will keep nighttime temperatures coolers as the evening low slips to 57 degrees.
More sunshine is in the forecast for Thursday as temperatures are expected to make it as high as 85 degrees. Mostly clear skies at night will be coupled with another round of cooler temperatures, settling around 58 degrees.
By Friday, the sunshine and temperatures in the low 80s will be bookended by partly cloudy skies at night, which also means a possible rise in humidity.
