Another round of storms is expected to approach from the west tonight. Strong to severe storms will be possible, mainly in parts of Central Texas (the orange shaded region). Damaging winds will be the main threat. Localized flooding may also become a concern overnight.
Clouds and rain will stick around on Tuesday with high temperatures only in the 70s. Small hail will be possible with stronger storms. Additionally, heavy rainfall may result in some flooding issues.
A deep upper low will develop over the Lone Star State, maintaining rain chances. The additional rainfall may cause flooding issues. The persistent cloud cover and rainy weather will cap daytime temperatures in the 70s, well below normal for late May. The upper low may drift east/northeast late in the week, reducing rain chances during the upcoming weekend.
Multiple rounds of showers and thunderstorms are expected over the next few days along with cooler temperatures.
