Heading into the first official week of summer, today brings both high temperatures and heavy rain before a cold front hits Central Texas.

The National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory from noon to 8 p.m. today. Austin-Travis County EMS recommends avoiding being outside for a period of time and to hydrate, dressing in light clothing, and wearing a hat and sunscreen as getting sick from the heat can quickly turn into a heat emergency, it says.

NWS also predicts there is a 20% chance of rain just after 4 p.m. and thunderstorms to hit after 10 p.m. Winds could reach 20 mph.

The high for the day is 95 degrees, although it will feel much hotter. However, temperatures will get cooler going into tomorrow with a cold front. The high for tomorrow looks to be 84 degrees with a low of 74.

But the cold front won't last with temperatures returning to the 90s the rest of the week.
