spots.

…Marginal Risk for Strong to Severe Thunderstorms Tuesday Afternoon through Tuesday Night…

…Locally Heavy Rainfall Possible through Thursday…
Timing and Overview:
Scattered to numerous showers and scattered thunderstorms will be possible across South Texas through the mid week with a weak cold front moving across the region. The greatest chances will develop Tuesday afternoon through Tuesday night, with the Victoria Crossroads and northern Coastal Bend expected to receive the highest amount of rainfall. Training showers and thunderstorms could produce isolated flooding, although the overall flood threat for South Texas is currently expected to be minimal. There is a marginal risk for some strong to severe thunderstorms to develop Tuesday afternoon through Tuesday night, with damaging wind and heavy downpours being the primary threat. Rain chances will continue into Wednesday before diminishing west to east on Thursday.
South Texas Impacts:
Winds: 50 to 60 mph gusts possible in the marginal risk area.
Hail: Pea to dime sized hail in the marginal risk area, with isolated 1 inch or larger hail possible.
Rainfall: Through Thursday average amounts of 1 to 2 inches across the southern Coastal Bend to the Coastal Plains, and 2 to 3 inches possible across the northern Coastal Bend and Victoria Crossroads. Locally higher amounts possible with training showers and storms.
Tornadoes: An isolated tornado cannot be ruled out, but is not likely.
