Rainy, warm day; strong cold front later this week

The cloudy and dreary weather has returned along with the warm and tropical air. 

Austin made weather history this morning with a record-warm low for November 7 with the temperature not dropping below 74º. 

The tropical air is interacting with a stalled front to the north and creating scattered light rain in the area. 

Rain totals will stay below a third of an inch and the showers will only last through the morning hours. 

Less rain going into the afternoon with some sun to force highs into the low 80s. 

A very warm week is ahead, but the strongest cold front of the season will arrive on Friday.
