Rain, chilly nights in store for this week

Cooler nights are in store for this week as a storm rolls through Monday, bringing rain and gusty winds during the day.

The National Weather Service has issued a hazardous weather outlook for Monday. A slight chance of showers will last until 5 p.m. today until a rainstorm is expected to sweep through Central Texas, including Travis County, bringing with it 30 mph wind and up to half an inch of rain.

Rain is expected into Tuesday morning, and while it'll clear up Tuesday, more rain is expected Wednesday and Thursday.

Along with the rain, the cold front will bring chilly nights in the 50s all week long.
