FORECAST: Cloudy skies in Austin on Wednesday; cooler weekend expected


Monday forecast for Austin: Forecasters are calling for mostly cloudy skies in Austin on Wednesday with afternoon highs reaching as high as 83 degrees.

While cloud cover should stick around the area all day, meteorologists are not expecting any significant showers and thunderstorms until Friday night into Saturday morning.

A few areas of patchy rain and drizzle popped up in the Austin metro area around 7 a.m., so roads could be a little slick during the morning commute.

According to the National Weather Service, the Austin metro area will see similar conditions over the next couple of days.
