Wet weather pattern returning to Central Texas

Don't worry: temperatures will remain mild with all precipitation falling in the form of rain.

What a difference a week makes! After single-digit temperatures last week, highs have bounced back to the 80s this week.

The next cold front will move through on Wednesday night, but we still do not anticipate any additional widespread freezing temperatures as Texas continues to thaw out.

Here's a breakdown of what we're expecting for the week ahead.

Mid-week cold front brings a cooldown, but we remain above freezing

Our next cold front will move through Central Texas on Wednesday evening, bringing in a cooler air mass for Thursday and Friday. But don't worry, temperatures remain well above freezing. 

Highs Thursday and Friday will fall to the upper 50s and low 60s thanks to a northerly wind as well as more clouds and rain. Even with the cooldown behind the front, we are expecting lows to stay in the 40s and 50s. Expect scattered showers Thursday with isolated rain chances lingering Friday. 

At the moment, Thursday and Thursday night will likely have the highest rain chances. The current forecast calls for a 50% chance of rain Thursday, and we'll keep scattered shower chances into the weekend and possibly the beginning of next week.

Computer models are currently not in great agreement for the weekend, but for the time being, we'll keep scattered shower chances in the forecast Saturday and Sunday.

We're expecting the most widespread rain for areas east of the Interstate 35 corridor over the next seven days. But even there it looks like totals will be mainly under a quarter of an inch.
