CENTRAL, Texas — Isolated thunderstorms are possible Friday night embedded within broader areas of rain. While severe weather is not expected, heavy rainfall may result in some minor flooding issues.

Chances for thunderstorms will return to the area next Thursday.

Our rainy patchy will exit as a cold front moves in from the northwest tonight. That will trigger additional showers overnight, mainly east of I-35 where the better moisture lingers. The front will push through the remainder of the Central Texas and the Brazos Valley Saturday morning. Cooler and drier air will keep temps in the 40s and 50s for Saturday.

After a brief reprieve from the rain through Tuesday, wet weather will set up mid-week into next weekend. Severe weather is not expected at this time, and rain chances should come to an end sometime Friday evening or early next Saturday.

Daytime high temps through mid-week next week will be below normal with a slight warming trend to follow. Morning conditions will feel chilly before moderating through the end of the long term period.

The fire weather threat will remain low over the next several days thanks to recent widespread wetting rains, however, burn bans remain in effect for Mills, San Saba, and Comanche counties.
