AUSTIN, Texas — Tropical Storm Alberto formed in the Gulf of Mexico Wednesday morning, making it the first named system of the 2024 Atlantic hurricane season. Alberto officially made landfall Thursday morning in Mexico and will continue to fall apart over land throughout Thursday. Although the center of Alberto is more than 600 miles away from Austin, the outer most tropical rain band will continue to bring rainfall through Thursday. 

While the heaviest rain has already moved west of the Hill Country Thursday morning, additional scattered showers will be possible for the afternoon. This activity will be hit-or-miss, but where the downpours form there could be locally heavy rain. The overall rain chance on Thursday is about 50%. 

The bottom line for Central Texas

Although the heaviest rain has already moved west, some additional scattered tropical showers will be possible on Thursday. Some of these showers could contain heavy downpours, but the overall severe weather threat on Thursday is low.
