Another round of beneficial rain on the way

AUSTIN (KXAN) - Hot sunshine continues for one more day, then more periods of rain arrive as we head into the weekend. This may be our third wet weekend in a row across Central Texas.

We are monitoring a low pressure trough moving eastward from California, scooping up copious moisture from a tropical disturbance in the Pacific. These ingredients are forecast to combine over Texas to produce another round of beneficial rain with minor flooding possible, mainly Friday and Saturday.

Rain is largely expected to end on Sunday, with warming weather early next week. We are seeing signs of our first significant cold front of the early fall season late next week, with the potential for windows-open overnights. Stay with us for updates.
