Bell, Lampasas and Coryell counties saw light rain Tuesday, but more precipitation could come in days ahead.

The National Weather Service predicts another cold front will pass through Central Texas Saturday into Sunday, bringing temperatures back down into the 30s with about a 30 percent chance of showers.

A modest warm-up will come before the front, with sunny conditions and temperatures predicted to reach mid 60s by Friday.

“There is potential for showers with that cold front,” said meteorologist Lee Carlaw with the NWS office in Dallas/Fort Worth. “Most activity is going to be ahead of the front Saturday afternoon.”

Carlaw included the chance of stray, isolated thunderstorms for today due to the heightened moisture levels in Central Texas.

“The big news for today is the cooler condition,” he said. “ We can’t rule out an isolated thunderstorm with the moisture levels [the area] is socked in.”

Most of Bell and Coryell counties saw only three-hundredths of an inch of rain Tuesday, with Lampasas County only accumulating two-hundredths. Low temperatures for all three counties Tuesday were as low as 32 degrees.

Low temperatures for Thursday are predicted to drop into the low 40s. | 254-501-7553
