The storms that roared through South Texas beginning Sunday night didn't do much more than make a lot of noise in the Crossroads.

The storm was caused when moisture from the Gulf that had been building up for several days met a cold front moving slowly into the area on Sunday evening, according to the National Weather Service in Corpus Christi. Cold fronts aren't unusual this time of year, meteorologist Greg Wilk said.

Despite a slow-moving storm system that unleashed a large amount of rain on South Texas on Sunday night and Monday morning, the Crossroads only recorded .64 inches of rain during a 24-hour period, said Wilk. The storm also brought quarter-sized hail just south of Victoria, Wilk said.

Wilk said there was a 40 percent chance another thunder storm system would move through the Crossroads Monday night, but noted that no severe weather was expected with the system.

Temperatures are forecasted with highs near 80 and lows around 60 on Tuesday.

The cold front moving through the area has brought the temperatures back to where they usually are this time of year, Wilk said.

"It's been so warm the last few days that this is bringing a little more back to normal," he said.
