As deep tropical moisture shifts westward through the day today, Central Texas will see rain showers taper off during the afternoon on Friday. The weak cold front that moved through on Thursday is well south of the area and slightly drier air is working into the I-35 corridor.
As the upper level energy moves away, the dry air moving in should end rain chances late Friday and clearing skies are expected overnight into Saturday. Clouds keep temperatures in the low 80s today. Look for cooler conditions Saturday and Sunday mornings, with low dropping to the middle and lower 60s. Some Hill Country locations could fall to the upper 50s.
Austin-Bergstrom Airport set a new rain record on Thursday with .75 of an inch.
Sunshine should push afternoon highs across the region to the middle and some upper 80s for the weekend. Rain returns to the forecast next Tuesday.
