Rain from the remnants of Hurricane Zeta have moved out of the Lakeway Area and cold weather will soon follow behind it, according the National Weather Service.
Derek Eisentrout, forecaster with the National Weather Service, said the hurricane has left the area drenched.
“We’ve experienced around three inches of rain,” he said.
The storm hit Louisiana earlier this week as a Category 2 hurricane and has since been downgraded to a tropical storm.
The storm is expected to head into the Mid-Atlantic States before heading into the Atlantic Ocean.
Media reports have said about three people have died from the storm in Louisiana, Mississippi and Georgia. The storm also left more than 2 million people without power.
With the storm moving out, the projection today is it will be warm and humid.
Eisentrout said it is expected to be around 75 degrees and will be humid. Overnight, there will be light rain, measuring about one-tenth of an inch.
There will also be gusts throughout the day and night of 15 to 25 miles per hour.
Then it gets cold quickly, he said.
“We’re going to go to tropical weather to cool Fall-like conditions in 24 hours,” Eisentrout said.
On Friday, the highs will be 50 degrees and dropping into the 30s by nighttime.
Temperatures will continue to be cool this weekend with highs in the mid-50s and lows in the mid-40s.
The temperature is expected to drop even lower as next week starts just before Election Day.
“We have the possibility of a freeze on Monday morning,” Eisentrout said.
