…Pockets of Locally Heavy Rainfall Possible Tonight through Wednesday…
Area of Concern:
Late this afternoon into early evening – Central Texas across Hill Country to Edwards Plateau
Tonight through Wednesday – Most of the Hill Country and South Central Texas.
Threats & Impacts:
Winds: Isolated storms capable of producing damaging straight-line wind gusts up to 60 mph.
Hail: Isolated storms capable of producing large hail.
Rainfall: 1-2 inches common along and east of a Burnet to Uvalde line. Isolated pockets of 3-4 inches can’t be ruled out east of this line. Lesser amounts near the Rio Grande.
Timing and Overview:
An upper level storm system and cold front moving across South Central Texas will generate showers and storms today through Wednesday across much of the Hill Country and South Central Texas. The best chance of storms will occur across the Rio Grande Plains this evening and then spread northeast across the Hill Country to the I-35 corridor overnight into Wednesday, then east of I-35 to the Coastal Plains on Wednesday.
Some storms could become strong to severe, with large hail and damaging straight-line winds the primary threat. In addition, isolated pockets of heavy rainfall are possible east of a Burnet to Uvalde line. However, recent drought conditions should limit widespread flash flooding issues.
Severe Storms: Low to Moderate
Rainfall Amounts: Moderate
