All of central Texas is in a “Slight Risk” for severe thunderstorms this afternoon and evening.

As an upper-level disturbance and cold front approach central Texas Sunday afternoon and evening, scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected to impact the area.

Some of these thunderstorms have the potential to become severe – with large hail and damaging winds.

Our Easter Sunday weather will favor early outdoor plans, as storms will likely impact the area late this afternoon.

The weather will be more conducive for outdoor Easter egg hunts and picnics early in the day, before storms begin to affect the area.

Storms are expected to fire over the Hill Country just after the lunch hour, then progress south and eastward into the metro region by late this afternoon or early this evening. Storms will impact eastern counties until around sunset. After sundown, rain will be exiting the region.

Have a great Easter, be safe, and keep an eye to the sky!
