AUSTIN ( -- Showers and thunderstorms, and even a chance of severe weather could impact your plans Saturday afternoon.

A Tornado Watch is in effect for the Austin metro until 8PM tonight...

Scattered showers have been falling for much of the morning hours; daytime heating could help to fire stronger storms as a dryline approaches from the west.

Earlier Saturday, the same system was reponsible for as many as four tornadoes in West Texas, including two immediately around Abilene.

Storms will clear out late Saturday, bringing sunshine and heat for Sunday, with highs breaking into the lower 90s - and heat index values nearing 100 degrees.
