Heavy rain and severe storms possible tonight, tomorrow

2"-4" of rain possible in some areas

AUSTIN (KXAN) — An approaching storm system combining with a slow-moving cold front will mean heavy thunderstorms at times tonight and tomorrow.

Ahead of the system, we expect just a few passing showers and an isolated thunderstorm today. Rain will remain scattered in nature, and rain totals light.

As a slow-moving front sinks southward toward the northern Hill Country tonight, it will act as a focus for heavy rain and thunderstorms. That same front gets a boost through the area from northwest to southeast during the day tomorrow, bringing a guarantee of rain and thunderstorms -- and potentially severe weather -- when it passes through your neighborhood.

Where that front stalls tonight into early tomorrow may be the key to where we see flooding. Many computer models are indicating 1-3" rain totals areawide by tomorrow evening, but 5-6" where that front stalls. Even if it sets up one or two counties to the north of our northern Hill Country tonight, we may still see that runoff flow into our Highland Lakes.
