Statement as of 6:01 AM CDT on May 28, 2017

Expires 8:00 PM EDT on May 28, 2017


... Strong to severe thunderstorms with locally heavy rainfall
possible tonight...

... A rainy pattern is expected over south Texas this week...

A frontal boundary is forecast to move into south central Texas
and the Edwards Plateau this afternoon. Showers and thunderstorms
are expected to develop along the boundary this afternoon and
early evening.

There is a good chance that some of these thunderstorms will move
south and southeast during the evening and overnight hours tonight.
A few strong and possibly severe storms could develop late tonight
and early Monday morning, mainly over the northern brush country
and Rio Grande plains. The main impacts from the storms will be
strong and possibly damaging winds along with large hail.

Also, if the complex of storms develops tonight, there will be
the potential for locally heavy rainfall, as deep tropical
moisture begins to pool along the boundary. Rainfall amounts
averaging 1 to 3 inches will be possible through Monday, with
locally higher amounts possible.

Rain chances will continue Monday night through the upcoming work
week, as moisture remains above normal over south Texas.
Additional rainfall amounts of 1 to 2 inches will be possible
Monday night through the work week. Depending on how much rainfall
occurs during the next few days, a Flash Flood Watch may be
needed over portions of south Texas at some time next week.

However, there remains some uncertainty concerning the rainfall
coverage and rainfall amounts during the upcoming week. Residents
are encouraged to keep updated on the latest forecasts for not
only tonight but for the rest of the week. Listen to your NOAA
Weather Radio or local media, or you can keep track of the latest

... Heat index values between 105 and 109 degrees are expected
today across much of south Texas...

The combination of warm temperatures and high dewpoints will
produce heat index values between 105 and 109 degrees today.
Residents with outdoor activities planned are urged to drink
plenty of water, wear light weight and light colored clothing and
take frequent breaks from the heat. Young children and pets should
never be left unattended in vehicles under any circumstances.
This is especially true during warm or hot weather when car
interiors can reach lethal temperatures in a matter of minutes.
