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.

Come Wednesday night, temperatures will drop to 55 degrees, sustaining cooler weather through the weekend nights.

Clear and sunny skies are expected the rest of the week with highs teetering in the high 70s, but not past 80 degrees.

The cooler weather comes after warm weather has broken some records for this time of year.
