The National Weather Service and Storm Prediction Center have issued a severe thunderstorm watch for South-Central Texas until 5 PM today. Eagle Pass, Crystal City, Cotulla, Beeville, Victoria, Kenedy, Pearsall, Hondo, Uvalde, San Antonio, and Cuero are a a few towns included. The strongest storms through the afternoon hours may produce large hail up to the size of tennis-balls, localized wind gusts up to 70 MPH, and heavy rainfall. An isolated tornado is not out of the question. Storms located between Uvalde and Hondo should generally move to the east/southeast and possibly become a small cluster of severe storms as they move into a relatively unstable airmass.
