There are a few strong to severe storms this morning in the northwestern portion of the area. These storms are out head of a front that will bring more storms into Central Texas later on today. We will see that front sweeping in around midday and that will spark up some showers and storms. The chance for severe weather today remains on the lower end. Highs will be a bit cooler, only climbing into the low 80s. 

As the front moves southward, so will our rain chances. The best chance for storms late afternoon/tonight will be in the southern portion of the area. Tomorrow morning will still have a few lingering showers and storms but the highest chance for storms tomorrow will be in the Brazos Valley. 

To recap our rain chances: 

Thursday morning: There are a few strong-severe thunderstorms moving from NW to SE. They are out ahead of the main storms that come in later today. 
Thursday afternoon: Around lunchtime a front will be draped across the area & will spark up a few showers/storms. Storms aren't expected to be severe.
Thursday evening: Highest storm chance will be in the southern portion of the area as front pushes down. 
Friday morning: Dodging a few showers and storms around. Most of the activity will be coming to and end. 
Friday afternoon/evening: There will be a few storms around--highest chance will be SE of Waco, Temple, & Killeen (in the Brazos Valley).
