Austin will see "big weather changes" this weekend, with likely thunderstorms Friday morning and early Saturday morning, according to the National Weather Service.


There is also a hazardous weather outlook for the Austin and San Antonio areas, with the most impact expected on Friday.

"The primary hazards will be marginally severe hail and a few damaging thunderstorms with wind gusts," according to the NWS. "In addition a few pockets of locally heavy rainfall are possible today along and east of Interstate 35. These could produce ponding on road ways and other minor flooding impacts."

A cold front is also expected Friday, with daytime highs forecasted to range between the mid-50s and low 60s over the next week.
