Austin could be seeing some light rain throughout the day Wednesday before another thunderstorm later in the night.

The National Weather Service has issued its second Hazardous Weather Outlook for the week after Monday night's storm. A severe thunderstorm will hit Central Texas, bringing large hail and damaging winds along with a possible tornado threat.

The storm will carry over to Thursday morning but will die out during the day. Thursday night through Friday should see clear skies, but thunderstorms could return Saturday.
