Sunday's severe weather threat is over for Austin but the next week is going to get thunderous—literally.

ACL festival-goers were largely spared from rainy weather but it looks like it will finally catch up on the city. Clouds are expected to take over the sky for a 40% chance of rain as evening closes in on Monday, with thunderstorms developing after midnight.

Though it looks like it will be a wet week, temperatures are dropping to pleasant levels, remaining 90 degrees or cooler before a slight cold front hits on Saturday.

Tuesday is expected to bring scattered thunderstorms and cloudy skies all day with the chance of rain hovering between a 39-50% throughout the day.

Wednesday is expected to see a morning of on-and-off rain, clouds and sunshine though the chance of rain will increase to 70% in the evening, bringing potential for more severe storms.

Wednesday's rain seems like it will carry over into Thursday, which is expected to stay rainy into the afternoon.

The chance of rain tapers off around Friday with less than 25% rain all day. The next day, temperatures aren't expected to rise above 75 degrees and could drop down as low as 50 degrees.

Get out those sweaters!
