From the National Weather Service:
A strong upper level storm disturbance and surface cold front will move across Texas tonight into Tuesday. This system will interact with a moist airmass across South Central Texas to generate widespread showers and thunderstorms. The cold front will focus thunderstorms over the Edwards Plateau and Hill Country by this evening with the focus shifting east to the I-35 and Highway 281 corridors early Tuesday morning, continuing eastward to the Highway 77 corridor by Tuesday afternoon. Severe thunderstorms with large hail and damaging winds as well as locally heavy rainfall will be possible. Isolated tornadoes could also develop. Average rainfall totals are expected to range from 1/2 to 1 inch in the western counties to between 2 and 5 inches in the eastern counties. Isolated rainfall totals of 5 to 7 inches will be possible along and east of a Cast to Kerrville to Hondo to Pearsall line.
