Austin weather: Mother's Day showers and storms, potential for fooding

Happy Mother's Day! There is a chance for showers and storms once again, especially in the eastern portion of the FOX 7 Austin viewing area. 

Temperatures will warm up to near 80 under cloudy skies. 

There is a potential for flooding today as well but there is a higher chance tomorrow.

Tomorrow will also have slightly higher temperatures as we warm up to the lower 80s.

Austin Emergency Management is reminding drivers that sometimes it’s hard to tell if there’s water on the road.

If you encounter high water, don’t attempt to drive through it. 

If you must drive, stay away from creeks, trails, culverts, ponds, and other drainage infrastructure.
