Strong to locally severe thunderstorms will fire over portions of South Texas into Monday night.

The storms will bring the potential for damaging wind gusts and hail. A couple of the strongest storms could also produce a tornado.

Flash and urban flooding are possible in some locations, as is typically the case with thunderstorms in Texas.

Communities that can be hit by a severe thunderstorm include Laredo, McAllen, Brownsville, Victoria and Corpus Christi.

In addition to the threat of damaging weather conditions, the storms offer temporary relief to the drought conditions in the area, which have been getting much worse in recent weeks.

A few locations could be hit with an inch or two of rain into Monday night.
