Main round of storms

Our main line of thunderstorms continue to develop out in the Hill Country and are quickly moving eastward towards the Austin-Metro area at about 40 mph. This will bring the most significant severe risk of the day with damaging winds and isolated tornadoes possible along the leading edge of storms.

A line of storms will start to develop in the Hill Country between 7 and 9pm
Strong to severe storms possible along a cold front this evening into tonight

Rainfall projections

While heavy thunderstorms may produce over 1″ of rain in some isolated areas, many will see far less rainfall than that, and some neighborhoods may unfortunately remain dry.

Generally light to moderate amounts of rain expected out of today’s storms

While this first storm system may disappoint some in terms of rainfall totals, a second storm later this work week could produce widespread rain totals near 1″.

Temperature trend

Behind tonight’s cold front, autumn weather returns Tuesday and Wednesday with sunshine, mild days and brisk nights. High temperatures will be cooler than normal on Tuesday, only reaching the 70s.
