On and off showers and t-storms are expected through Saturday as a slow moving cold front stalls over south Texas. Very moist air over the region will cause storms to produce heavy rain which could lead to flash flooding and a Flash Flood Watch is in effect through Saturday afternoon. Rainfall amounts of 2-4 inches are expected with local amounts as high as  6 inches through Saturday. Also, storms moving in Thursday evening could be  severe with damaging wind, large hail and isolated tornadoes possible. The front moves south of the area and we’ll dry out from Saturday evening into Mother’s Day with only a spot storm chance Sunday and highs in the lower 80s.

Tonight: T-storms are likely and some will contain heavy rain. Lows will drop into the upper 60s by morning with winds shifting to the northeast.

Friday: Morning showers and t-storms will become spotty in the afternoon with some dry time through the afternoon.  It will be cooler with highs in the mid to upper 70s and northeast winds up to 15 mph.

Friday Night: Showers and t-storms are likely, some with heavy rain. Lows will drop into the upper 60s.

Saturday: Scattered showers and t-storms with highs in the upper 70s to near 80.

Mother’s Day: Partly cloudy and mainly dry with only a slight storm chance and highs in the low to mid 80s.
