Scattered showers expected throughout the day in Austin

Thursday forecast for Austin: Forecasters are expecting scattered showers to drop up to an half of an inch of rain in Austin and surrounding areas throughout the day on Thursday.

According to the National Weather Service, Camp Mabry will see around a 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms both in the morning and in the afternoon.

Weather Service meteorologist Constantine Pashos said the best chance for showers will come between 7 a.m. and noon, then another round is possible late in the afternoon and into the evening.

The region should dry out again overnight, priming the area for more clear skies through the weekend.

“Some areas could get nothing while other could get half of an inch,” he said.

Temperatures are expected to increase again over the next few days to highs in the upper 80s on Friday, then into the 90s on Saturday through at least Tuesday.

After chances for showers end on Thursday, no rain is in the forecast through at least next Wednesday, according to the weather service.
