Another round of disturbances will march through Central Texas this week, allowing for scattered thunderstorms and the risk for severe weather and flash flooding.
The main threat for severe weather Tuesday will be far west of Central Texas, but we still can’t rule out a strong storm Tuesday afternoon and evening.
Better chances for severe weather around Austin and Central Texas arrives Wednesday.
Much of Central Texas, including the Austin metro, is under an “enhanced” risk — three out of five on the severe threat scale — for severe storms on Wednesday. Storms producing large hail, damaging winds and tornadoes will be possible starting Wednesday mid-morning through the evening hours.
Strong to severe storms will also be possible on Thursday. Along with the severe threat, heavy rainfall could provoke additional flash flooding and even river flooding this week. Rainfall amounts over the next seven days could range from two to four inches, with isolated locations possibly seeing as much as six to seven inches.
May is typically our wettest and most active time of the year when it comes to severe weather and this forecast is a testament to that.
