Severe thunderstorm watch in effect for Travis, Williamson and Hays counties until 1 a.m.
A tornado watch for much of Central Texas has been discontinued and replaced with a severe thunderstorm watch until 1 a.m. Travis, Hays and Williamson counties are included in the new watch.
Hail up to 2 inches in diameter, frequent lightning and wind gusts up to 60 mph are possible during overnight storms.
A text message sent out Wednesday afternoon — apparently in error — said there was a severe thunderstorm warning in Travis County. The Weather Service said in a tweet that it was looking into the source of the alert and reiterated that there were no active watches or warnings at the time. A follow-up text message sent shortly after 3 p.m. said people can disregard the prior message.
