Spotty light rain and sprinkles will continue across much of the area through sunrise. However, more widespread light to moderate rain with isolated thunderstorms will spread north into our Central Texas counties during that time. Rainfall will be well under a quarter of an inch most areas, however isolated pockets of upward to a half of an inch will be possible across Central Texas by daybreak. No severe weather is expected.
Moisture will continue gradually pushing into the region tonight and on Friday. Isolated showers will develop during the afternoon on Friday, initially south of I-20, before rain becomes widespread across the entire region overnight Friday and through Saturday. Rain chances will continue all the way through Monday, before some drier air finally moves back into the region Monday night.
A very strong cold front will move into the area next Wednesday resulting in the coldest weather of the season so far. Temperatures on Thursday morning will range from the low 20s to around 30. Blustery winds will cause some wind chill values to drop into the teens.
