The National Weather Service predicts the possibility of strong thunderstorms this afternoon.

There’s a chance of severe thunderstorms in the area this afternoon, according to the National Weather Service.

Battling it out with high temperatures, storms could bring hail and damaging winds, and the NWS says as much as two inches of rain could fall per hour. Further away from the city, parts of the Austin/San Antonio region could also see golf ball size hail.
