RAIN MOVING OUT, AND SHORT-TERM FORECAST:
Rain is currently moving out of East Texas, and this marks the end of our several-day bout with thunderstorms. There's a slight chance of overnight showers, mainly to the south and east of I35, but I'm leaving these chances at around 10%.
After the recent rains, our lakes are sitting nicely at nearly 100% combined storage. Travis is up to 103% full, while Buchanan is at 95% full.
24 HOUR RAINFALL TOTALS:
The heaviest amounts of rain fell around the 35 corridor, and in Travis county. The LCRA gauges have been reading increasing numbers all through the day, and although these are subject to change, some of the highest amounts ranged from 2-3 inches!
CBS AUSTIN Extended Forecast:
Despite a slight shot at showers and some brief Fog overnight tonight, warming trends along with sunshine will make this weekend a beautiful one! Get outside! Highs next week should land in the upper 60s to the lower 70s, under mainly sunny skies. I have a 30% of rain for Saturday and 10% for Sunday.
