April showers, storms could hit Austin Monday before sunny skies return


After a glimpse of sunny Austin springtime weather, a Hazardous Weather Outlook is in effect in Central Texas with severe storms possible Monday afternoon and night.

Temperatures will continue to reach highs in the low 80s, but scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible as the day progresses.

Most of Travis County and the entire I-35 corridor to the south have been labeled with a "marginal" chance for isolated heavy storms, while northern Travis County, most of Williamson County and all of Burnet County are given a "slight" risk. If storms are to occur, large hail and damaging winds could come with the strongest storms.

Sunny skies are expected to return by Tuesday afternoon and continue throughout the week, with high temperatures climbing to the low 90s Tuesday before settling in the 70s and 80s for the rest of the week. Dry winds, with gusts up to 20 miles per hour, bring the area to Critical Fire Weather conditions Tuesday-Friday.
