Severe Weather Possible Tuesday Night

Authorities are warning of potentially severe thunderstorms in Central Texas tonight.

National Weather Service meteorologist Amanda Fanning says there's a 20% chance of severe thunderstorms in the Austin area. She says there's a slight chance of showers, but large hail and damaging winds are also possible. Any storms that do occur are likely to be severe.

Chances for severe weather are greater to the west of Austin, in Blanco, Burnet and Gillespie counties. 

The City of Austin is warning people to be aware. Storms could move through the area beginning after 6pm tonight.
