A cold front will be the main weather player today across the Hill Country. 

The front will bring colder air and the risk for locally heavy rainfall and a marginal risk for a few severe storms.

I would expect showers and thunderstorms today. Locally heavy rainfall is possible for some locations. Highs top out in the lower 70s initially, but could fall into the 50s and even some 40s during the day as our next front arrives. Winds become north at 15 to 25 mph during the day.

Storms could produce locally heavy rainfall, small hail and wind gusts to 50 mph. A low tornado risk is possible, mainly across the northeastern Hill Country.

Lingering rain showers are in the forecast tonight with lows in the upper 30s as cold air moves in.

Friday will be much colder with a few morning showers perhaps. Highs remain in the lower to middle 50s. North winds continue Friday. I wouldn’t be surprised if some areas hold in the 40s all day.

A mixture of clouds and sunshine continues through the weekend with highs in the 60s each day. Lows drop into the 30s and 40s each night this weekend with isolated showers possible.
