It's shaping up to be a cooler trick-or-treating weekend after stormy weather passes through Austin.

Winds will pick up Tuesday night and in the early hours of Wednesday with a 90% chance of rain by 4 a.m. in Austin. Up to half an inch of rainfall is expected through Wednesday morning. The National Weather Service reports the thunderstorm could be severe with possible hail.
