Austin weather: First cold front brings widespread rain, cooler temperatures to Central Texas

How about the biggest daily rainfall for Austin since May 13th?

Much of the area received 1 to 2" of rain this morning. 

A few leftover showers are possible this morning but drier and cooler times are ahead this afternoon. 

Today we will stay in the upper 70s and low 80s for the first time since June 5th. 

Another cold front arrives late on Friday and it will be a dry and windy one. 

The front will usher in a reinforcing shot of chill for the weekend with dry skies.

Fall is finally in the air!
