Heads up for the potential for strong, possibly severe, thunderstorms very early Tuesday morning across the Rio Grande Plains and again later Tuesday morning/early afternoon across the Northern Coastal Bend and Victoria Crossroads areas. This is currently a lower than average confidence forecast in terms of cold front timing on Tuesday.

An earlier/quicker cold front passage than currently expected may greatly reduce the strength of any storms that develop Tuesday, thus greatly limiting the severe thunderstorm threat. Heavy rainfall will also be a factor with this system north and east of Highway 281 Tuesday.
