In typical 2020 fashion, Austin is due to finish out the year with a "busy weather week," including fog, rain, sun and another cold front.


After a sunny weekend and foggy Monday morning, Austinites can expect rain early in the week and possibly into Thursday with temperatures dropping throughout the week.

According to the National Weather Service, strong storms are possible Wednesday afternoon and evening east of I-35 and Highway 37 as a cold front approaches from the north, bringing temperatures to the 30s.

Despite Wednesday evening's cold front causing temperatures on New Year's Eve to dip and dropping even lower the following days into the weekend, it is unlikely there will be snow.

New Year's Day and into the weekend is expected to be sunny with highs in the 50s and lows in the 30s.
