'Slight to Enhanced' Chance of Severe Storms in Metro Tonight

FROM THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE:

iming and Area of Concern:

1 PM to 7 PM today primarily east of Highway 83

Threats & Impacts:

  • Winds: Damaging wind gusts in excess of 60 mph with any severe storms. There is a low risk some severe storms could produce significant wind gusts in excess of 70 mph.
  • Hail: Quarter to golfball sized with any severe storms. There is a low risk some severe storms could produce significant hail in excess of golfball sized.
  • Rainfall: Isolated pockets of heavy rainfall could lead to localized flash flooding.
  • Tornadoes: Very Low chance for isolated tornadoes.  

Overview:

After overnight showers and storms the atmosphere should destabilize once again by the afternoon and storms are expected to initiate in the early afternoon across the Hill Country. These storms should then move east/south into portions of the I-35 corridor by mid-afternoon, and east of I-35 and I-37 by early Thursday evening. There remain some subtle differences in guidance on the exact locations of where these storms will track, but in general there is a slight to enhanced risk severe storms could occur across the Hill Country and along and east of the I-35 corridor. 

Large hail and damaging wind gusts are the primary threats. There is a low risk for significant straight-line wind gusts in excess of 70 mph and very large hail in excess of golfball sized, if all ingredients come together. Some of the stronger storms could produce isolated pockets of heavy rainfall leading to localized flooding. Please remain "weather aware" this afternoon and evening.

Confidence:

Moderate
