AUSTIN, Texas — A Flash Flood Advisory is in effect for a few Central Texas counties, including Travis, Burnet and Llano counties until 8 a.m. A Flash Flood Warning is in effect for Blanco and Gillespie counties until 8 a.m.
Higher rain chances and a cool down are on the way for mid-week as a cold front approaches Central Texas. Rain has begun ramping up in the Hill Country with the threat for Flood Advisories to be issued during the morning and rest of the day. Wednesday night and Thursday will yield widespread coverage of rain heavily weighted towards the Hill Country where 2″-3″+ will be possible. This could cause issues with flooding for some locations. Rainfall totals more along the lines of 0.5″ to 2″ are expected along and east of the I-35 corridor.
The temperature forecast is where things get a bit more tricky. Temperatures will likely be in the 80s for most of Central Texas Wednesday afternoon ahead of the front, but the temperatures beyond that will depend on the placement of the cold front and how strong it is as it pushes into Central Texas Wednesday night into Thursday.
For now, we’ll call for temperatures in the 60s by Thursday morning with upper 50s possible in the Hill Country. Then afternoon temperatures on Thursday near 80 degrees in Austin with cooler temperatures across the Hill Country as the front pushes east. Morning temperatures in the 60s and low 70s will be possible again for Friday morning. If the front is able to hold more strength into Central Texas then these numbers could be even cooler, especially for areas west of the Interstate-35 corridor. Some computer models still show this situation playing out, so we’ll continue to watch closely.
Nonetheless, we’re expecting a rebound into the upper 80s to near 90 degrees by the weekend. Rain chances will stick around with a 30 to 40 percent chance on both Saturday and Sunday.
Mostly cloudy with a 80% chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms. Locally heavy rainfall possible, especially across the Hill Country. Southeast wind at 5 to 15 mph.
Mostly cloudy with a 70% chance of rain and storms, especially across the Hill Country. East turning north-northwest wind at 5 to 10 mph.
50% chance of showers and storms late overnight. Mostly cloudy. Southeast wind at 5 to 10 mph with gusts up to 20 mph.
