It is May, the middle of severe weather season, and a time of year we usually see a lot of rain in Central Texas. Over the coming days we have several chances for storms and the risk for severe weather. Here is what to expect...
SUNDAY: Scattered storms will move up from the south, heading north in the afternoon and evening hours. Nothing severe but the stronger storms will contain lots of lightning, heavy rain, and gusty winds.
MONDAY: Next round of storms fires in the afternoon along and east of I-35. Small risk for hail, damaging winds.
TUESDAY: This is the day with the highest risk for severe weather. From midday through the afternoon hours, a dry line will approach from the west and a cold front from the north. We will be warm, humid which will lead to a lot of energy in the atmosphere. Large hail, damaging winds, and isolated tornadoes could all happen.
REST OF THE WEEK: Off and on storm chances continue through Friday. Rain totals over the next 5 to 7 days could exceed 3 to 4 inches, isolated spots higher. That could lead to flooding concerns, especially for local lakes and rivers.
