April showers linger bringing possible large hail to North Austin tonight

Another chance of hail could hit the North Austin area area Monday night.

April showers are pushing into May with another wave of possible thunderstorms coming in tonight, according to the National Weather Service.

While much of Austin has a low threat level for severe storms, areas of North Austin up the I-35 corridor could experience more large hail, amounting up to 2 inches and damaging winds up to 70 mph. The NWS cannot rule out an isolated tornado.

The storm, which comes after days of rainy weather and a patch of large hail in Hays County last week, is conditional on if "a cap breaks." A cap is a layer of relatively warm air that can fend off thunderstorms, the service says.

Tuesday morning could see some scattered thunderstorms, but a chance at May flowers will finally come to Austin with sunny skies from Tuesday afternoon through at least Friday. Highs will reach the low- to mid-80s throughout the week.
