CENTRAL TEXAS — Warm and Muggy air worked north into Central Texas Saturday thanks to a warm front. With all the added moisture in place, scattered showers were around. That same moisture hangs around tonight keeping things warm and muggy. Lows will only fall into the 60s with a few isolated showers possible along with drizzle.

Heading into Sunday, a cold front will approach the area in the afternoon. Before it arrives, highs will climb into the mid 70s with isolated showers possible. As the cold front nears, an isolated strong thunderstorm can't be ruled out. There will be a strong cap in the mid-levels of the atmosphere, so the chance of this happening is very slim. Nevertheless, we'll keep a close eye on radar through the day.

Behind the front, temperatures will fall and scattered showers and storms will break out. The best chances of rain should arrive overnight as a chunk of energy moves northeast across Central Texas. As this happens, some small hail, potentially up to the size of coins, and some gusty winds can't be ruled out. Scattered showers will continue into Monday with rumbles of thunder possible. Temperatures will stay in the 40s and 50s. Rain should clear out overnight into Tuesday.

Tuesday will be a cool day, but south winds will quickly bring back the warm, moist air for Wednesday. Another storm system will move in Thursday and will bear watching. Right now, the best chances for storms look to stay east of Central Texas, but we'll have to keep an eye on it. Stay tuned.
