From Brady Taylor:
It’s a cloudy, mild, and muggy start to this Tuesday morning. Rain chances are low this morning, but a few sprinkles are possible.
Spotty shower and thunderstorm chances gradually increase across our area as we head into the afternoon and evening hours. As of now it looks like the best coverage of rain today will stay northwest of Central Texas near a cold front that will gradually be moving our direction. Although the overall rain and storm chance is only near 40%, any storms that form may contain gusty winds, heavy rain and pocket change size hail. Fortunately, the severe weather risk this afternoon and evening is low.
As the approaching front and an upper-level low slide through the area late Wednesday morning, expect a significant jump in the rain coverage. Heavy rain will be possible for much of Central Texas. We're expecting 1" to 3" of rainfall with locally higher amounts between 4" and 6" possible. The rain will move out early Thursday and we'll be dry for the remainder of the week and into the weekend.
