Thunderstorms with lightning can be expected all weekend in Central Texas. (Pexels)

It might be time to adjust any outdoor weekend plans- it seems like thunderstorms are here to stay into Monday.

There will be at least a 50% chance of storms over the next few days. The National Weather Service has issued a hazardous weather outlook for Travis and surrounding Central Texas counties.

Hail, like those seen in Hays County Wednesday night, could be possible into the weekend, but the weather service doesn't anticipate any more large hail.

Scattered showers will bring cooler temperatures with lows in the 60s and highs in the 70s. On Saturday and Sunday, isolated severe storms are expected east of I-35.

Come Monday, we should see sunny skies and 90-degree weather just in time for the first week of May.
