It's been a relatively quiet Spring so far but that is about to change as our weather pattern becomes more active over the next few weeks.

Tuesday, we start off calm with just a lot of clouds and humidity. For the afternoon, a dryline pushes in from the west and will serve as the focal point for storm development.

These storms will start out to the west and then push eastward through Central Texas tonight. Storms will be scattered, meaning some will see storms and some won't. We will have to watch storm development carefully since there is a possibility of large hail, strong winds and tornadoes.

his system starts as early as this afternoon in our western counties, continues overnight, and will eventually push eastward and out of the area by Wednesday afternoon.

For a recap, see below.

  • Tuesday Morning: Humid, muggy, cloudy, dry. Temperatures in the upper 60s and low 70s. Winds are out of the south 10-20mph. 
  • Tuesday Afternoon: Storms fire out west first, then push eastward this evening/overnight. Storms will be scattered and likely severe. 
  • Wednesday Morning:  A few lingering showers/thunderstorms especially in the southeastern portion of the area. Temperatures in the mid 60s. 
  • Wednesday Afternoon: Clearing out from west to east. We will be very warm too! Highs in the upper 80s with even a few low 90s possible west of I-35.
