A cold front is expected to move south across the region during the day on Tuesday, reaching the Upper Texas Coast Tuesday evening. A few strong to severe thunderstorms may be able to develop within a larger thunderstorm line along and ahead of the cold front as it crosses the region, with best chances for any severe weather potential generally along and north of the Interstate 10 corridor from mid to late morning through the afternoon hours.
We will have to keep an eye on if the cold front slows or stalls as this may result in locally heavy rainfall impacting areas near and southwest of the Houston metro that saw heavy rain yesterday. Confidence is low in this occurrence, but if it does happen it may impact portions of the evening commute. Transportation interests south of Interstate 10 are encouraged to keep up with the forecasts for Tuesday afternoon and evening.
+ Gusty winds
+ A brief tornado or two
+ Quarter-size hail
+ Locally heavy rain
