People walk in the rain on the UT Austin campus last year.

The remnants of Hurricane Pamela interacting with an incoming cold front brought more than 3 inches of rain to Austin overnight.

A flash flood warning remains in effect for Caldwell County and parts of Hays County along the Interstate 35 corridor, including Buda, Kyle and San Marcos, until 10:45 a.m.

Large parts of Travis County got about 3 inches of rain over the past 24 hours, the National Weather Service said, with southern areas of the county getting closer to 4 inches. Parts of southern Hays County got more than 7 inches of rain.

With no additional rain in the forecast this week, a flash flood watch for Austin has been canceled.

"The good news is, once this is behind us, the strongest cold front of the fall thus far will arrive on Friday with a sunny, dry, and more comfortable weekend in store," the NWS said in a tweet Wednesday.

High temperatures this weekend will be in the mid-70s and the lows will go down to the upper 40s.
