Severe thunderstorms continue to move to the east/southeast. Large hail (around 1 inch) and damaging winds will be the main threat.
It will be cooler Sunday in the wake of the Saturday's cold front. Clouds will decrease from southwest to northeast but skies will remain across the northeast past sunset. Highs will be in the lower 60s northeast to the lower 70s across parts of Central Texas with northwest winds 10 to 20 mph. Some gusts over 25 mph are likely.
