Over two inches of rain and nickel sized hail had already fallen in parts of the Austin area by 8:30 PM Sunday, catching some off-guard.

The National Weather Service is advising anyone outside to seek shelter immediately.
The storms tonight will kick off what could be a week of rainy weather in the region. May is typically one of the rainiest months of the year. Memorial Day weekend has already seen two historic floods in Austin over the last 50 years.
