Central Texas weather: Cold front, some showers and storms possible

Strong winds with a cold front are arriving in Central Texas Wednesday night.

Wednesday's cold front lowered some temperatures into the mid 60s. Cloudy skies will continue into this evening, with rain and potential slight risks of flash flooding in eastern counties Thursday and Friday.

The warm spell ends, and we are back to seasonal levels with highs in the 70s. It may feel cooler with wind gusts of 25 to 35 mph. 

More rain expected Thursday and Friday as another Western Low interacts with the stalled front.
