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.
Isolated severe thunderstorms are possible this evening along the I-35 corridor but will be conditional on if the cap is able to break. Large to very large hail, possibly 2+ inches, and damaging winds of 60 to 70 mph are possible. An isolated tornado cannot be ruled out. #txwx pic.twitter.com/hmbDjiYdpZ

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.

A week after Texas added two congressional seats and California lost one, state officials reported a population decline in 2020 for the first time in the Golden State's history.
California fell by over 182,000 people from January 2020 to January 2021, dropping almost 0.5% to cap out at around 39.5 million people. It is still the nation's most populous state.
For over thirty years, California has seen more people leave than move in from other states, state officials said, with 6.1 million people moving out and 4.9 million coming in last year. Immigration and births kept California growing, but the state saw a shrink in international migration in 2020 due to COVID and the White House's hold on visas.
Of the steady flow of ex-Californians moving to other states, more are moving to Texas than any other state. Many are relocating to Austin, which has been labeled a "little California" by billionaire resident Elon Musk and continues to grow astronomically.
Meanwhile, California cities including Los Angeles, San Diego, San Jose and San Francisco saw a population decline.
With immigration and state migration on the decline, the Golden State was also hit with a spike in deaths- 51,000 people died from COVID in 2020, and all but seven of the state's counties saw death rates higher than the three-year average.
Still, the California Department of Finance said a "slightly positive annual growth" can be expected next year as the state recovers from COVID deaths and political repercussions.
