It is going to be a cloudy, wet, & cool Thursday across Central Texas. Rain will push in from the west this morning and become widespread by lunchtime. We will continue to see rain through the afternoon. Rain totals will range anywhere from 1-3 inches with isolated totals up to 4 inches possible. This could lead to some flooding hazards and a Flash Flood Watch is currently in effect for some of our far western and southern counties. With the clouds and the rain, temperatures will struggle to make it out of the upper 60s! The rain pushes out by tonight and Friday morning should be a lot quieter.
