More possible tornadoes? Short-lived storm expected before sunny weather on Wednesday


Austin is going to get some well-needed rain overnight, but it could bring more severe weather to the area again.

After a few weeks of swinging temperatures and severe weather, Tuesday is going to be tame with clouds and a slight chance of rain all day. With a low temperature of 65 degrees and a high of 81, the highest chance of rain will be from 6-10 a.m. on Tuesday.

The rest of the day is expected to be breezy and cloudy with a wind advisory is in effect from 1-4 p.m. Then an overnight thunderstorm kicks in from around 1-6 a.m. on Wednesday morning.

While the storm looks as though it will be more severe for Dallas and other Texas areas, according to the National Weather Service, Austin is in the marginal danger zone. Locals can expect to see hail, damaging winds and possibly tornadoes.

It should be back to business as usual by later in the morning on Wednesday, by 9 a.m. it should be sunny again and by afternoon temperatures will go into the mid-80s.
