AUSTIN, Texas — While the threat of severe weather has lowered, any additional rain could cause flooding. In addition, an already saturated soil means that the water will take some time to recede.

Remaining unsettled over the weekend
A shallow yet potent cold airmass is bringing some unseasonably below-normal temperatures. Most of Central Texas is experiencing temps in the mid to low 40s.
Showers are forecast to increase through midday Saturday into the afternoon, becoming numerous to widespread.
At this point, we can’t rule out a stray thunderstorm or two with an additional half-inch to one inch of rainfall possible.
Flood risks possible over the weekend
It is important to remain weather aware as most areas have soaked soil and runoff will be likely. Low water crossings will be vulnerable and so will low-lying areas.
This disturbance is not expected to stick around through the full weekend. Another impulse will pass across the region on Sunday and elevated showers will be possible, but with less convection and warmer temperatures.
The KVUE Storm Team will continue to monitor this developing forecast.
