Strong storms possible Monday

Ongoing rounds of rain will have the potential for strong-severe storms around the Austin area over the next 12 hours.

AUSTIN, Texas — The KVUE Weather Team is monitoring the potential for strong storms to impact Central Texas on Monday.

The severe weather risk increased for most of Central Texas for Monday late morning through the evening, especially along and east of Interstate 35, which now is under a "marginal" – level 1 out of 5 – risk for strong storms. The main concerns will be very large hail and damaging wind.

The reason for the increased risk of severe weather is because of the risk for large hail.

High-resolution forecast models show the window of concern falling between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. Monday. Storms begin southwest of the viewing area and then push northeast throughout the afternoon and early evening. 

As of 4 p.m. most of the widespread rain has exited east of our region, but towards 6 and 7 p.m. an additional round of storms are possible, as the cold front pushes in from the Hill Country.

Storms will be capable for producing at least 1 to 2 inches of rain and potentially more in isolated spots, so minor flash flooding is once again possible, although the best chances for that are east of I-35.

By Tuesday, conditions will be hot and dry, but the humid and wet pattern soon returns for the end of the workweek.

Stick with KVUE for the latest as we track these strong storms. 

Severe risk dwindles tonight. Drier and hotter for the next two days. Rain returns Thursday.
