The Highland Lakes will see unseasonal heat through Sunday, Oct. 22, followed by several days of rain starting Monday and then cooler weather, according to current forecasts.

The National Weather Service is predicting daily high temperatures in the mid-90s on Friday and Saturday and the 80s on Sunday for Marble Falls. Nights will remain cool, dropping to the 60s on all three days. A similar forecast is predicted for Llano County.

The service’s current forecast also has a high probability of rain Monday-Wednesday, Oct. 23-25. The Weather Channel forecast shows rain continuing until Oct. 28. 

Daily highs are expected to remain in the 80s and lows in the mid-60s during the rainy stretch. The Weather Channel predicts temperatures will fall significantly — highs in the 70s and lows in the 50s — after the rain passes.

Hurricane Norma, which is currently moving north off of the western coast of Mexico, is the likely culprit of the coming rain, according to the National Hurricane Center.
