AUSTIN (KXAN) — Spotty storms and showers on Saturday brought isolated 1″+ rainfall reports. Most areas continue to stay dry the rest of the night with just 10% rain chances overnight under a partly cloudy sky. It’ll be a warm night with lows in the upper 60s.
A few showers and isolated thunderstorms (20% chance) are possible Sunday. Most stay dry with sun giving way to increasing clouds and highs in the middle and upper 80s again.
Memorial Day storms
An upper-level low will bring higher rain chances to Central Texas late Sunday night through Monday. Rain coverage on Monday should get at least 50% of Central Texas beneficial rain. Even if you get rain, it won’t be raining all day. Have an indoor backup-plan ready to go in case storms push into your Memorial Day plans.
While heavy rain is possible, we’re not currently expecting other modes of severe weather on Memorial Day.
The rain may bring isolated flash flooding concerns where localized 1-4″ rainfall amounts are possible Monday into early Tuesday. Central Texas is in a 1 out of 4 flash flood risk on Monday.
It’s worth noting some of our computer models keep rainfall out of Central Texas on Monday. Those models are, right now, in the minority, but we’ll have to see if other models jump on board with that drier solution.
Some lingering showers or storms are possible into Tuesday, but generally drier weather will dominate.
That drying will continue through the middle to the end of the week, but rain looks to return next weekend.
