Strong to Severe Thunderstorms to Develop Late Tonight through Tuesday Morning
Timing and Overview:
A cold front currently pushing through North Texas is expected to stall across Central Texas this evening. As this boundary stalls, shower and thunderstorm activity is expected to increase in coverage and push farther south into South Texas. These storms are expected to move into an environment more conducive for the development of isolated strong to severe thunderstorms. At this time, the biggest threats these storms may produce are strong damaging winds and large hail greater than 1 inch. However, isolated tornadoes can not be ruled out. We anticipate that shower and thunderstorm activity will enter South Texas roughly after midnight across the northern areas of South Texas, including the cities of Cotulla, Beeville and Victoria, and then move slowly southward Tuesday morning across areas from near Laredo to the Texas coast. There still remains uncertainty with regard to the timing and position of shower and thunderstorm activity this evening through Tuesday morning.
South Texas Impacts:
Winds: 60+ mph
Hail: Large hail 1+ inch
Tornadoes: Isolated tornadoes possible, although main concerns are the wind and hail threat.
