Tornado Watch issued for most of Central Texas, Tornado Warning for some

CENTRAL TEXAS (KXXV) -

A Tornado Watch has been issued for several Central Texas counties and will stay in effect until 10 p.m.

You can keep up with a list of effected counties here.

Storms will start out west of I-35 then push eastward throughout the afternoon. Storms could start as early as noon today and will last for the rest of the afternoon and into the evening too.

Today's storms could easily become strong to severe and we have to watch out for large hail, damaging winds, a tornado or two, and flash flooding. The highs potential for flash flooding will be east of I-35. 

Saturday the activity should be east of I-35 and into the Brazos Valley. The morning could bring some light showers and the afternoon could spark up a few storms. The highest potential for this will be along the I-45 corridor and into the Brazos Valley. Most of us should be dry by the second half of Saturday.

For a recap on the storm potential, see below: 

  • Friday night: Storms push to the east of I-35. Flooding threat is highest. 
  • Saturday morning: Few showers around, especially along and east of I-35. Rain will be light.
  • Saturday afternoon: Most of Central Texas will be dry. There is a small chance for storms along the I-45 (far east Central Texas) and into the Brazos Valley. 

Stay weather alert and have a plan in place in the event severe weather pays your neighborhood a visit. You can depend on the First Alert 25 Weather Team to keep you ahead of the storms as they develop.
