New Tornado Watch for Southcentral Texas Until 1am CDT...

The above Tornado Watch was just issued by the SPC in Norman, OK. It is valid until 1am CDT on Tuesday morning and includes the cities of Austin, Kyle, Buda, San Marcos, New Braunfels, San Antonio and Laredo.

Very large hail, damaging wind gusts and tornadoes are possible with severe storms in this area this evening and tonight.  Very heavy rainfall may also cause flash flooding, especially in low lying or poor drainage areas.

If you live in these areas, remain alert this evening and tonight.  Listen to local media or another trusted source for the latest updates and possible warnings.  Make sure to identify your sheltering location ahead of time, that way you can get there quickly if a warning is issued for your area.

Severe weather can be especially dangerous at night.  Make sure that you have a way to receive severe weather warnings at night.
