…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.

…A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is in effect for the Rio Grande plains and portions of the Hill Country until 10 PM…

IMG_0882

…Severe Thunderstorms and Locally Heavy Rainfall Possible over portions of South Central Texas This Afternoon through Tonight…

Area of Concern:

Greatest risk of severe storms will be from the Rio Grande eastward to the I-35 corridor. Greatest risk for heavy rainfall will be across Hill Country.

Threats & Impacts:

Tornadoes: A few brief tornadoes possible.

Winds: Wind gusts to 60 MPH.

Hail: Quarter sized.

Rainfall: Average rainfall amounts of 1 to 2 inches with isolated amounts of 3 inches possible across the Hill Country. Amounts should be a little lower along the I-35 corridor, with 1/2 to 1 inches with isolated amounts up to 2 inches. This could result in localized flash flooding and minor river flooding.

Timing and Overview:

A Pacific front and upper-level disturbance will interact with high moisture levels to produce showers and thunderstorms across south central Texas this afternoon and tonight. A line of showers and storms is ongoing this afternoon near the Rio Grande and southern Edwards Plateau. A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is in effect for this region, as well as portions of the western Hill Country. Elsewhere, isolated to scattered showers and a few storms are in progress across the remainder of south central Texas.

The line of storms along the Rio Grande will move eastward this afternoon and tonight. The initial area of concern for severe weather will be along the Rio Grande. However, a there is a chance for some severe activity ahead of this line across all of south central Texas this afternoon and evening. As the line of storms progresses eastward, into the Hill Country between 7 PM and Midnight, strengthening will occur and this will likely provide the best chance for severe weather. As this line continues to march eastward into the I-35 corridor between 9 PM and Midnight, some gradual weakening is expected.

Please stay up to date through the evening on the evolving situation as any changes in the forecast may shift the location and timing of the severe weather and locally heavy rainfall threat.

Confidence:

Moderate to High

Area of Concern:

Greatest risk of severe storms along I-35 and west to the Rio Grande. Greatest risk for heavy rainfall across Hill Country.

  • Threats & Impacts:

Tornadoes: A few brief tornadoes possible.

Winds: Wind gusts to 60 MPH.

Hail: Quarter sized.

Rainfall: Average rainfall amounts of 1 to 2 inches with isolated amounts of 3 inches possible across Hill Country. 1/2 to 1 inches with isolated amounts up to 2 inches along the I-35 corridor.

 

Timing and Overview:

A Pacific front and upper-level disturbance will interact with high moisture levels as they move across South-Central Texas to produce showers and thunderstorms. Isolated to scattered showers and storms are possible this afternoon across the Hill Country into the Austin area with a low chance for strong to severe storms. There are higher chances for strong to severe storms as storms form into a line with isolated storms out ahead of the line and move to the east across the Edwards Plateau late this afternoon into early evening, the Hill Country this evening to around midnight, to along the I-35 corridor around Midnight into the overnight hours. The storms may weaken as they move east of I-35 early Monday morning. The threat for heavy rainfall looks to be over the Hill Country and Central Texas, where isolated amounts up to 3 inches are possible. This could result in localized flash flooding and minor river flooding.

Please stay tuned to updates on this evolving situation as changes in the forecast may shift the location and timing of the severe weather and locally heavy rainfall threat.

Severe Weather Threat Sun-Mon

Area of Concern:

All of South Central Texas, with the best chances of strong to severe storms on Sunday afternoon and evening before transitioning more to a locally heavy rainfall threat Sunday evening into Monday morning.

Threats & Impacts:

Tornadoes:  A few tornadoes possible. 

Winds:  Wind gusts to 60 MPH.

Hail:  Quarter sized or greater.

Rainfall:  Average rainfall amounts of 1 to 2 inches with isolated amounts of 4 inches possible.

Timing and Overview:

A Pacific front and upper-level disturbance will move across northern Mexico into west Texas by Sunday afternoon and evening with temperatures and moisture levels ahead of the front more similar to mid-March than mid-January. Strong to severe thunderstorms are expected to develop by Sunday afternoon across the Edwards Plateau and Rio Grande Plains before moving east into the Hill Country and Interstate 35 corridor by Sunday evening. Soil moisture conditions are not expected to be conducive for flooding initially, but there is a potential for flooding by Sunday night into Monday as the front slows down and moves towards the Coastal Plains. Minor river flooding will be possible through the middle of next week as light to moderate rain showers continue into at least Tuesday.

Please stay tuned to updates on this evolving situation over the holiday weekend as changes in the forecast may shift the location and timing of the severe weather and locally heavy rainfall threat.

Confidence:

Moderate
