Austin may have been spared the summer heat, as temperatures are expected to remain in the 90s with slight chances of rain later in the work week.

Andrew Quigley, a meteorologist at the Met Office, said the start of the week would be somewhat dry due to an air mass that came behind Saturday’s storms.

Southerly winds are expected to blow moisture from the Gulf of Mexico starting later in the week, causing increased humidity, Quigley said. He said it will also enhance the chance of light, scattered rain and thunderstorms later in the week, with areas east of Interstate 35 having the highest chance of seeing any precipitation.

Are we done with 100 degree heat?

That could be the case, with the weather service not predicting any temperatures in the upper 90s for the next seven days. That’s about when we start to see temperatures drop, Quigley said, although a rogue day or two with highs into the 100s can’t be ruled out.

“We are cautiously optimistic that we will stay below triple digits, but it is not outside the realm of possibility,” he said.
