Austin could see the first glimpse of fall with a cold front after the expected hottest day of the year.

Expect some whiplash this week, Austinites: with an expected high of 103 degrees, Monday is predicted to be the hottest day of the year, but a midweek cold front is on the way to bring that first glimpse of fall.

Austin-Bergstrom International Airport could see its first 100-degree temperature this year on Monday as temperatures citywide are expected to exceed this year's record of 102 degrees.

Highs will be in the upper 80s and lows in the 50s and lower 60s for the front's final two mornings.
