AUSTIN (KXAN) - A cold front plowed through the area Wednesday morning and dropped temperatures by as much as 30 degrees within just a few hours.
Wednesday will continue to stay cool, at best recovering to the upper 50s and low 60s.
The air mass that has been in place the past few days was not only warm; it was muggy as well. The humid air fueled the front to pop up a few scattered showers for the morning drive.
The chance for rain will hang around through the midafternoon, before clearing out to the east.
Considering the unsettled weather will clear so quickly, rainfall amounts won't be very impressive. At best, we may see 0.5 inches in a few communities. However, most of us will be left with 0.1- to 0.25 inches of rainfall.
Once this storm system moves into the mid-Atlantic, our weather will settle down for the weekend. Partly- to mainly sunny skies are forecasted into early parts of next week.
