From Rusty Garrett:
Showers and thunderstorms blossomed in Wednesday's afternoon heating, with pockets of heavy rain near and east of I-35. As usual, the trend will be for all activity to pulse down as we move into the evening hours.
Overnight lows fall into the middle 70s with partly cloudy to mostly cloudy skies. A weak frontal boundary slowly sinks southward from the Metroplex Thursday afternoon. If the front arrives before the end of the day in Central Texas, you can expect a slight increase in rain chances. If the front is delayed, expect only scattered afternoon rainfall.
High pressure begins to move closer to the area Friday into the weekend. High pressure continues to build, allowing for mostly sunny skies to return by Sunday afternoon with temperatures nearing 100° by the end of the weekend. High pressure remains in control for much of next week, keeping Central Texas weather hot and dry.
