Overnight thunderstorms lingering into Thanksgiving in Austin


Be prepared for a wet and chilly Thanksgiving as overnight storms bring rain into the morning across Central Texas.

Thunderstorms are expected to occur just before midnight tonight with the thick of the storm passing through Austin between midnight and 3 a.m. Showers will last until around noon on Thanksgiving, bringing less than an inch of rain in total, according to the National Weather Service.

After a sunny afternoon, temperatures are forecast to drop into Thursday evening, reaching a low of 42 degrees.

Friday will remain partly sunny before a cloudy weekend could bring a chance of showers for Saturday and Sunday.
