AUSTIN - With the Halloween floods fresh in the minds of Central Texans, there was some concern Wednesday morning's rain could bring more dangerous flash flooding.
KVUE was out at Bull Creek in Northwest Austin Wednesday, but the morning's rain had little impact.
Although rain chances remain high until mid-Wednesday, the flash flood risk remains low. By 8 a.m., parts of the Austin metro had already picked up 0.25” to nearly 1” of rainfall. An additional inch of rainfall is possible through noon.
Some clearing will occur late Wednesday afternoon behind a strong cold front that will decrease the temperature and increase the wind speed. Wind gusts of 30 mph will be possible throughout the day.
Clear skies and cold are expected Wednesday night. Temperatures will fall to the mid 40s in Austin, low to mid 40s east of IH-35, and upper 30s in the Hill Country. Highs will once again only be in the 60s for Thursday afternoon.
