Central Texas ended the work week on a wet note as a cold front passed over the region.

A couple waves of rain shifted over the region on Friday, with some isolated embedded thunderstorms. Light to moderate rain started to fall in our western counties around the early to mid morning. The same bands of showers reached the I-35 corridor around 9:00 AM, but had minimal impacts on morning commutes. Waco Regional Airport recorded just under a quarter of an inch of rain on Friday, topping out at 0.23 in.

By the early afternoon, two separate lines of storms intensified east of the I-35 corridor. More frequent lightning was observed, as well as increased rainfall rates. The First Alert 25 Weather Team was in full force monitoring the eastern tier of the forecast area, including counties such as Freestone, Leon, Madison and Brazos Counties.

The weather pattern will quiet down Friday evening through Sunday morning. The focus will then shift to Sunday afternoon and evening as another low pressure system makes its way over the southern Plains. The main focus will be along our northern counties, from Hamilton County to Navarro County. This forecast is subject to change, so keep it with KXXV and the First Alert 25 Weather Team for the latest weather information.
