The First Alert 25 Weather Team is tracking the potential for severe weather across Central Texas between Saturday afternoon and Sunday. Due to this threat, a First Alert Weather Day has been issued for both days. 

On Saturday, a dry line will set up across west Texas. Atmospheric conditions will be favorable for the development of strong to severe thunderstorms. During the afternoon, most storms should be confined to areas west of I-35. By Saturday evening, storms are expected to form closer to the I-35 corridor.  

The main threats associated with Saturday’s storms will be damaging winds and large hail. There will also be a slight chance for flooding and isolated tornadoes.

Sunday’s First Alert Weather Day could pose greater threats to the region. Depending on the track of the low pressure system, we could see storms fire up across most Central Texas counties. 

The main threats associated with Sunday’s storms will be large hail, damaging winds and flooding. Additionally, there is a higher risk for tornadoes on Sunday compared to Saturday.

The First Alert 25 Weather Team will be tracking these storms throughout the weekend. Make sure to download your First Alert 25 weather app for the latest weather updates across Central Texas.
