A cold front diving south into Texas will bring increasing showers and storms with the risk of damaging winds and hail. A Severe Thunderstorm Watch has been issued for southwest Texas in the Edwards Plateau until 10 PM for large hail up to 2.5" in diameter and isolated damaging winds up to 70 mph possible.

Severe Outlook

Isolated to scattered severe storms are likely this afternoon and tonight from Del Rio to Dallas, Texas. Parts of Oklahoma and Arkansas could also see some severe storms, but the higher risk will be down in Texas.

Severe Risks

Damaging winds over 60 mph and hail great than 1" in diameter will be the severe risks to monitor across Southwest and Central Texas.  Any outdoor activities in these areas will need to have a weather plan ready to go in case severe weather strikes. There is a threat from even larger hail, that's defined as a "hatched region" from the Storm Prediction Center where hail could form up to the size of 2" or larger in diameter, and this is where our initial watch is expected to be issued.

Forecast

Thunderstorms should start up late this afternoon and this evening and could last well into early Tuesday morning.  The initial cells that develop likely will have large hail stones before it turns more into a damaging wind event.
