SCATTERED SHOWERS & STORMS IN THE FORECAST 

Sunshine returned to Central Texas on Wednesday, even though a few high clouds lingered across the region. We're expecting the clouds to work their way back into the region heading into Thursday morning, along with the possibility of a few showers and storms.

Heading toward sunrise, temperatures are expected to fall into the upper 30s and low 40s. We're going to be watching for some elevated showers and storms along and east of I-35. When we say elevated, we basically mean that the chances for severe weather are low. There will be a little bit of energy for storms to work with in the middle levels of the atmosphere, so small hail, gusty winds and locally heavy rain can't be ruled out in the strongest storms. The window for scattered showers and storms looks to be between the early morning and the early afternoon on Thursday. We're expecting a lull in the activity before another round of stormy weather passes through the region Friday. 

There will be a warming trend over the next few days, with spring-like temps returning Saturday. Highs should be in the low to mid 50s on Thursday, the upper 50s and low 60s Friday, and the upper 60s and 70s on Saturday. A dryline will push in from the west early Saturday morning. This feature will generate a line of showers and storms, mainly along and east of I-35. Our chances for severe weather also look pretty low Saturday morning, but strong to severe storms can't be ruled out near I-45. Our weather will improve Saturday afternoon into Sunday.
