Isolated Strong Storms Possible Late This Afternoon and Evening

Isolated Pockets of Heavy Rainfall Possible Tonight

Timing and Threats:

  • Isolated Strong Storms - 4PM to Midnight
    • Portions of I-35 Corridor, Hill Country, northern Rio Grande
    • Gusty winds up to 50 mph, hail up to penny sized, brief heavy rainfall in a few storms
  • Isolated Pockets of Heavy Rainfall - Midnight to 6AM Wednesday
    • Near and south of U.S. 90 and near and west of I-37
    • Pockets of 2-3 inches of rainfall possible

Overview:

A few showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop across portions of the northern Rio Grande and Hill Country late this afternoon, potentially moving into portions of the I-35 corridor early this evening. A few of these storms could become strong, capable of gusty winds, small hail, and brief heavy rainfall. Late tonight a cold front moves through the area bringing more widespread showers and storms along with some isolated pockets of locally heavy rainfall. At this time models are indicating the greatest potential for pockets of heavy rainfall to be near and south of U.S. 90 and near and west of I-37, where localized amounts of 2 to 3 inches of rainfall are possible. Ongoing drought conditions should limit significant flash flooding concerns, however some isolated storms could produce high rainfall rates that result in minor or nuisance flooding. It is difficult to pinpoint where exactly this will occur. Elsewhere rainfall amounts will average around 1/4 to 1 inch.

Confidence:

  • Rainfall Chances:High
  • Strong Storms: Low
  • Locations of Locally Heavy Rainfall:Low
