The storm prediction Center is already focusing on a potential severe weather event for Central Texas this Sunday into Monday. It’s very far out but the fact that they are already watching it very closely does have me concerned.

There will be a significant amount of upper level energy with this storm system.

We will be looking at the potential for large hail, damaging winds and several tornadoes if this weather pattern continues to show for the weekend.

Stay tuned for more updates.

Central Texas could see some severe storms this afternoon and evening.  A cold front moving in from the Northwest will provide enough lift to spark a few storms and those storms could quickly turn severe.  Large hail and damaging winds will be the primary weather threats, but an isolated tornado can’t be completely ruled out.

A cold front will be close enough to the area to provide a slight chance for a shower or storm Thursday. I am not seeing a severe threat.

Parts of central Texas are under a freeze warning Tuesday morning. Protect those temperature sensitive plants with temperatures either at freezing or below for an extended period of time.
