      WET WEEKEND

      Keep your umbrella handy! Some spots in Bastrop County saw between 2-3" of rain overnight, while the Austin area picked up less than 1". Though the heaviest rain has shifted away, we'll see periods of light to moderate rain today with some lulls. More rain develops tomorrow, heaviest tomorrow night, and the system finally moves out Monday with some lighter rain by then.

      The rain will help alleviate “abnormally dry” conditions in numerous Central Texas Counties – mainly east of I-35. It will also put a damper on the multitude of holiday outdoor events. But it doesn’t look like we’ll see severe storms or rain that falls at a heavy rate for a long enough period of time to cause much flooding. Puddles and minor flooding will be possible, along with slick roads due to rain – so take it easy.

      While rain totals could reach 2-4” with isolated 5" totals (highest east) through early Monday, for most, this will be an “inconvenience” for getting out and about versus a big threat to safety. It’s a different story farther east where the Weather Service in Houston anticipates hoisting a Flash Flood Watch for part of the weekend. Some rain projections for the Houston area range from 5-9”. If you’re heading toward East or Southeast Texas for the weekend, be prepared.

      ARCTIC COLD FRONT NEXT WEEK

      Enjoy Tuesday – when we see sunshine and 70…because Wednesday, an Arctic cold front comes to town! Temps may still reach upper 60s ahead of the front, then fall through the day. Thursday, we’ll wake up to 30s and may only see highs in the 40s! That’s along with strong north winds N 10-25 mph! The coldest air arrives Thursday night into Friday morning when upper 20s to low 30s are possible – including the first official freeze for Austin – Camp Mabry!
