Timeline: Rain potential continues Monday; cooler weather moving in to start the week

Rain chances continue through Monday behind our first strong cold front of the season. Morning temperatures drop to the 40s mid-week.

AUSTIN, Texas — Austin - Camp Mabry picked up the first measureable rainfall in over a month Sunday night, and rain chances now continue into Monday behind our first strong cold front of the season.

Through the rest of the overnight scattered showers and storms will continue to increase in coverage with some embedded pockets of heavy rainfall. We're not expecting major issues with severe weather, but one or two storms could be strong with gusty winds, small hail, and locally heavy rainfall capable of minor flooding.

The Monday morning commute will be a soggy one for much of Central Texas with scattered to numerous showers and storms around. A breezy north wind will drop temperatures into the low to mid 60s to start the day.
