After storms rolled in last night, the Austin area is expected to mostly clear up and return to the mild summer it's been having the rest of the week.

Before that, expect rain on Monday with high chances lasting all day. A flood advisory is in effect until 1 p.m. today.

Today will be the coolest day of the week with a high of just 88 degrees—temperatures are forecast to peak at 97 degrees through Sunday, with a low of 72 degrees.

The rain will mostly settle starting Tuesday, bringing partly cloudy and sunny skies. You might still want to have your umbrella handy though—a small chance of thunderstorms will linger throughout the week.

If you're planning on jumping on a flight before the afternoon, delays at the airport may be possible with an Airport Weather Warning for lightning in effect until 1 p.m.
