Cold front could bring hail, severe storms to Central Texas tonight

The National Weather Service reports that a cold front could bring storms into the Hill Country Monday night, with possible threats including "large hail" and "damaging winds."

After days of sunny skies, Monday night's temperatures will drop slightly into the low 60s or high 50s. Areas west of the I-35 corridor are most at risk of strong to severe storms.

Austin is in the "marginal" threat level for tonight, meaning the area could see isolated severe storms with the possibility of hail, winds or tornadoes similar to storms the area may experience several times per year.

Chances of thunderstorms will last at least through Friday, with high temperatures in the 70s and lows in the low 60s or high 50s. Storms should taper off over the weekend, with a chance of showers Saturday and partly sunny skies on Sunday.
