Tornado Watch Remains In Effect For Bastrop And Caldwell Counties Until 5 P.M.

National Weather Service

A tornado watch is no longer in effect for Travis and Williamson counties, but remains in place for Bastrop and Caldwell counties until 5 p.m. Wednesday.

The National Weather Service in Austin/San Antonio says a few tornadoes are possible in the watch area, along with widespread hail that could be lime-sized and 70 mph winds.

The NWS says large hail and damaging winds are the main threats for South Central Texas, but a tornado or two cannot be ruled out. The threat for a tornado is greatest east of Austin, the agency said.
