TODAY: The line of showers and storms will continue to move into our area during the early morning hours, making an eastward progression through the I-35 corridor before exiting east by this afternoon. The good news is it still looks like the line will weaken before arriving to our area, meaning rain and a few thunderstorms will be the main issues for the morning commute.

However, we still can’t rule out an isolated severe thunderstorm as there is still a possibility that these storms will strengthen again before it completely exits our eastern zones. To account for this, areas east of the I-35 corridor are still under a level 1 (marginal) risk for strong to severe storms to take place with hail and high winds being the main threat.

By around noon, all activity should come to an end, and sunshine and the 80’s are back by the time you head home this afternoon.


WIND:W around 15 - 20 mph with gusts up to 30 mph

THROUGH TOMORROW MORNING: Despite the active start to the day, a quiet night is ahead across the area. Clear skies and breezy conditions will make for a cool night across Central Texas past sunset.
