Thunderstorms, severe weather possible tonight
Thunderstorms and the potential for severe weather will arrive in the area after midnight tonight, Monday, Nov. 1, in the wake of a strong cold front, according to John Metz, the warning coordination meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Corpus Christi.
Metz said the Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has highlighted the South Texas area as being at slight risk for tonight.
As the front moves into the warm, unstable air over South Texas, thunderstorms are expected to develop. Strong, damaging winds and large hail are the primary threat tonight.
Rainfall of about half an inch is expected in this area.
The storm should reach the coast before daybreak Tuesday.
It will be windy Tuesday, with north-northwest wind between 20 and 24 mph, with gusts to 36 mph. The high will be near 74.
Behind the front on Wednesday, the high will be near 66, and it will be breezy, with the north-northwest wind at 24-26 mph and gusts as high as 32 mph.
