Strong storms possible Wednesday afternoon

A frontal boundary will move across the area May 3 in the afternoon and evening, allowing for chances of scattered showers and thunderstorms. Although the severe weather risk is low, a few storms could still be strong. 

Wednesday morning will start off mostly cloudy with patchy areas of rain. The best chance for an isolated thunderstorm before noon, will be for areas mainly east of Austin.

By the mid afternoon, the frontal boundary will approach the Hill Country, producing isolated showers and storms. 

By the early evening hours, the front could be the focus for showers and storms in the Austin Metro-area. 

By mid-evening, the front could bring showers and storm activity mainly south of Austin along Interstate 10.

By the late evening hours, the front will move into South Texas, ending our rain chances.

The severe risk will be marginal to slight across the area, meaning the severe threat is low. Isolated thunderstorms producing hail and gusty winds will be possible.

Because the front will move quickly through the area, rainfall accumulations will be less than a half-inch in most locations.

Behind the front, expect clear and dry weather through the weekend.
