The National Weather Service issued a severe flash flood warning for South Central Travis County and East Central Hays County through 11:30 a.m. on Friday.

Doppler radar indicated at 8:30 a.m. that thunderstorms will produce heavy rain across the area, including in Austin. Up to three inches of rain have already fallen in some places.

While dry ground is absorbing much of the rain, some low water crossings and creeks are already flooded, according to local weather reports. A list of affected areas is not yet available.

The low pressure system responsible for today's rainy weather is forecasted to dissipate on Saturday, with partly cloudy weather in the low 90s forecasted through the holiday weekend.

A cold front is expected starting on Tuesday evening, with daily temperatures ranging from 59 to 89 degrees.
