Mon, 12 May 2014 20:26:39 GMT — A slow moving cold front will scrape south along the Rio Grande Valley tonight through Tuesday night. This front is going to take 12 to 24 hours to completely pass through deep south Texas.The atmosphere over the Rio Grande Valley is moist and unstable so as this front slides through it is expected to fire off numerous thunderstorms which are forecast to generate pockets of heavy rain as well as the potential for severe weather. Anyone in the path of these storms can expect conditions similar to last Friday with strong gusty winds, frequent lightning and heavy downpours. The forecast cannot rule out some small hail or even possible tornados.The threat of heavy rain means 1 to 2 inches across the valley but heavier amounts of 2 to 4 inches are possible between tonight and late Tuesday.The front should shove off east of the valley early Wednesday morning bringing an end to any severe weather threat.
