Except for a possible reprieve Sunday, May 5, the forecast calls for a very wet two weeks.
According to the National Weather Service, the forecast for every day this week includes a chance for rain.
On Tuesday, April 30, scattered showers are possible with a high in the low 80s.
Then, Wednesday is when the Highland Lakes will have its highest chance for showers as a series of low-pressure systems move in.
Heavy rain is possible Wednesday with totals from 1-2 inches in the area and even higher isolated totals. Wednesday’s high will be in the low 80s before dipping down to about 67 that night.

According to Lower Colorado River Authority meteorologist Bob Rose, most of the Highland Lakes could receive 2-4 inches of rain for the week.
Sunday’s high, according to the NWS, will be 84 with no rain on the forecast — for now.
Next week, according to Rose, rains should return.
“Conditions locally appear favorable for periods of rain showers and thunderstorms to develop throughout the week,” Rose wrote on his blog.
Rose said that highs the week of May 5 should hover in the low to mid-80s.
