Rain ends early Sunday behind a pleasant cold front

AUSTIN (KXAN) — A cold front swept through Central Texas early this morning, bringing a quick round of rain and thunderstorms, followed by windy conditions and mild sunshine for your daytime plans.

While most communities received less than an inch of rainfall from this event, several LCRA gauges from northern Burnet county, down through Travis county and many locations east, saw just over an inch of rain Sunday.

For the rest of today, expect skies to gradually clear, leading to bright sunshine and nice weather for the Formula 1 race at COTA Sunday afternoon. Wind gusts to 30 mph may affect your outdoor plans, otherwise the weather will be gorgeous.

Looking a ways down the road, the most powerful cold front so far this season may move through the area at the end of the coming work week. Behind it, there is some disagreement among our computer forecasts, but we may have very brisk weather next weekend and even the first light freeze of the season in the Hill Country. Stay with us for updates.
