Severe storms with potential for hail pop up in Central Texas

AUSTIN (KXAN) — A severe thunderstorm watch has been in effect for most of Central Texas Sunday afternoon. It is expected to last until 10 p.m.

The KXAN First Warning Weather team is watching a storm cell in Mason County that may move south of the Austin metro area Sunday evening. The main threats to be on the lookout for will be large hail with a secondary threat being damaging winds. Most activity will come to an end before midnight.

The KXAN digital team compiled this live blog Sunday night to document the latest with the storms as it unfolded:
