AUSTIN -- Most of Central Texas will continue to enjoy the beautiful sunshine and comfortable temperatures this week, but a lucky few may see a spotty shower or thunderstorm. 

A weak disturbance is moving through parts of the area right now, which could be the focus of an isolated shower. The rain chance for Austin and the Hill Country will only be at 10 percent, but there is a 20 to 30 percent chance of a spotty showers for counties east of Interstate 35. 

High temperatures will be slightly below average, with low 80s across the area.

A southerly wind will return starting early Wednesday, which will slowly surge in moisture and warmer air from the Gulf of Mexico. Highs will be slightly above average Wednesday afternoon, and near 90 degrees on Thursday and Friday in most locations.

The extended forecast includes a cold front for the weekend. The front will move through the area Saturday afternoon, allowing for highs on Saturday to be 10 degrees cooler than Friday. 

Highs fall into the 70s on Sunday with a slight chance of rain.
