Austin has seen freezing rain, snow and even 80-degree weather this winter, and now it's time to check hail off the list.

According to the National Weather Service, Austin and much of the Hill Country can expect "strong to severe storms" Tuesday night with chances of "large hail and damaging winds." The NWS said most storms will occur between midnight and 7 a.m. Wednesday morning.

According to the NWS, Austin and the Hill Country have the highest risk of storms and can expect isolated and scattered severe storms. Damaging winds, hail that could be over one inch in diameter, and a low chance of an isolated tornado are also possible.

The last time it hailed in Austin was May 24, 2020.
