Our next fall cold front is set to move through Central Texas during the afternoon and evening hours on Monday. The strong south winds we have seen throughout the weekend has returned a lot of humidity into our area, and that should help to produce some decent rainfall totals with this system.

There is a slight risk for severe weather across mainly the eastern half of Central Texas during the afternoon and evening hours. Currently it looks like Central Texas could see a few strong storms between 1pm-10pm.

The main severe weather risk with any storms we see on Monday will be strong straight line winds up to around 60 mph. There could also be some small hail up to around quarter size. The tornado threat for Monday looks very low. Some locally heavy rain is possible, but with the drought conditions we are currently dealing with we don’t expect any major flooding issues in Central Texas.
