and last updated 2021-10-13 21:41:03-04

CENTRAL TEXAS — A Flood Watch is in effect tonight on into Thursday morning.

Scattered showers and storms will become more numerous through the evening hours, especially west of I-35. This area of rain and storms will advance east as we head into Thursday morning.

You need to be prepared for a wet morning commute, and possible flooding in a few locations. Please plan extra time to get to work and school Thursday morning. If you come to an area where water cover the road, Turn Around, Don't Drown! 2-4 inches of rain are likely, with some 5+ inch totals possible. The heaviest of the rain will be along and west of I-35, but we still could see 1-2 inches east of I-35 Thursday morning. We will be tracking this closely!

Things will start to wind down Thursday afternoon into Friday. Highs Thursday will make it into the low 80s as we begin to clear out. Our next cold front will arrive during the morning hours Friday. This front will bring gusty northwest winds and highs in the upper 70s and low 80s Friday afternoon.

The weekend is looking nice and fall-like! Highs will be in the 70s with lows in the 40s and 50s.
