Central Texas weather: Widespread rain expected Thursday and Friday

Cloudy, soggy and chilly day is ahead.

A stalled front will team up with a Western Low to give Central Texas multiple rounds of heavy rain and lightning Thursday and Friday. 

The heaviest rains will happen by mid-morning and again by late afternoon.

A Flood Advisory has been issued for Bastrop and Lee counties until 4 p.m. on April 6.

Winter is also trying to make a comeback with highs in the 50s and wind chills in the 40s. 

Make sure you take a jacket and umbrella with you today and keep them handy tomorrow also.

Future rain totals are trending up with a slight risk of localized flooding south and east of Austin.
