A severe thunderstorm watch has been issued for South Texas and the Middle Coast. This watch is in effect until 11 PM. Laredo, Cotulla, Beeville, Mathis, Kingsville, Corpus Christi, Rockport, and Victoria are a few cities included in this watch. The strongest storms over the next few hours may produce hail slightly larger than the size of a golfball, localized wind gusts up to 70 MPH, and locally heavy rainfall. We expect scattered strong to severe storms to move into northern sections of the watch area by 8 PM – and storms as a whole will progress south through the evening hours as a cold front pushes through. The threat for severe weather should be concluding by the late evening as storms either move out in the Gulf of move south into the Rio Grande Valley.
