AUSTIN (KXAN) — Damp weather to start the day but sunshine will be quick to return by early afternoon.
Any lingering rain and cloud cover is expected to clear by late morning allowing for a mainly sunny and dry Tuesday afternoon. Temperatures will run a touch cooler than what we felt Monday but will still be comfortable with most of us topping out in the low to mid-70s.
Tomorrow will feature a mix of sun and clouds with afternoon highs in the upper 70s. By Thursday, our weather begins to transition to an approaching Pacific storm, expected to bring significant impacts to our weather Friday into Saturday.
This Pacific storm will drag a cold front through Central Texas Friday night into early Saturday bringing the best chance of meaningful rain and strong thunderstorms. Preliminary outlooks are suggesting the chance of severe weather locally on Saturday. Stay with KXAN as we get more details on rain timing and severe weather risk over the coming days.
