This Wednesday will stay cloudy and cool. Temperatures are in the low 60s this morning and the clouds are thick. We have a few light showers out there this morning and we will continue to see on/off showers throughout the day. The highest rain chance will be this morning, the afternoon should be a little drier. Highs today only climb into the upper 60s and low 70s and northeast winds, running 5-15mph, will keep it feeling cool. 

Tonight should be cloudy but dry as well as the early morning hours tomorrow. We will see a system that will bring heavy rain into Central Texas for Thursday. We expect to see multiple inches of rain, on average about 1-3 inches. Areas along and east of I-35 have the highest chance for seeing some flooding issues. It will be a day where you want to keep a close eye on the weather. Severe storms are not likely, just heavy rain.

Wednesday AM: Light on/off showers, a lone thunderstorm or two. Nothing severe. The highest chance for rain today will be this morning. Rain totals light.
