Central Texas weather: Another day of widespread rain ahead of drier weekend

It's day 2 of the Winter-like chill and much-needed rain. 

Rain is likely today but it won't be as heavy and it won't last all day. 

After receiving a record rainfall Thursday, totals Friday will be around a half an inch or less. 

We're not expecting flooding or severe weather but we will see more lightning. 

With all the clouds, rain and northerly wind, highs will be well below average and staying in the 40s and 50s today.

Bundle up and don't leave home without the umbrella.
