We're expecting a fairly widespread two to eight inches of rainfall over the next seven days, but isolated areas could see up to 10 inches, with most of that coming on Tuesday and Wednesday. Isolated amounts as high as 10 inches will be possible, especially along and east of Interstate 35. 

A round of storms brought one inch to three inches of rain for parts of Central Texas during the day Monday, and more rounds of storms are on the way for Tuesday and Wednesday. 

Get used to this pattern because two upper-level areas of low pressures will be bringing round after round of storms into the weekend. Strong-to-severe storms will be possible with hail, damaging winds and heavy rain. Along with flash flooding, river flooding will be a major concern as well. 

Rain chances start to taper off by the second half of the weekend, and scattered showers and storms will continue into the start of next week.

TUESDAY: 
Mostly cloudy with a 90% chance of showers and thunderstorms, heavy rain likely. Southeast wind at 10 to 15 mph with wind gusts of 25 mph.
High: 84° 

TUESDAY NIGHT: 
Mostly cloudy with a 90% chance of showers and thunderstorms, heavy rain at times. Southeast wind at 5to 15 mph with wind gusts of 25 mph.
LOW: 69° 

WEDNESDAY:
Cloudy with an 90% chance of showers and storms, heavy rain likely. South-southeast wind at 5 to 15 mph.
HIGH: 78°
