A significant warming trend begins over the weekend with daytime highs climbing from the upper 60s on Saturday to the mid 80s by Monday.

The storm risk will increase this afternoon and evening as a line drops in from the north and northwest.

Most of the day should be dry with a slight chance of a shower late in the day. Now it looks like Sunday will be cloudy and cool with highs in the upper 40s to lower 50s.

India's Covid-19 infections surpass China, but contagion slowing
The US, Spain and Russian Federation are ranked first, second and third among the 10 countries with most number of cases. With 213 new cases, Rajasthan recorded its highest single-day jump in COVID-19 cases for the third consecutive day.

A disturbance near southern Florida and the western Bahamas will likely develop into a tropical depression, and then Subtropical Storm/Tropical Storm Arthur. It will get near the Outer Banks, causing rain, gusty winds and high surf there. There will be a localized threat for flash flooding as some areas will pick up an inch of rain this morning and could see another inch later tonight. "Rain totals in the 1-2" range are possible from the strongest of the storms but I expect those totals to be isolated.

Areas to the west of Austin could see large hail.
