After a stormy Friday Night and Saturday Morning, we’ll be continuing the stormy trend across much of Texas through tonight. The Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Oklahoma has issued a standard “slight” risk of severe weather for the northern half of Texas. This includes the Texas Panhandle, West Texas, North Texas, and much of Northeast and East Texas. Within this zone, there is a 15 percent or higher chance that you will experience severe weather close to your location. The primary severe weather hazards we’ll be watching for today will be large hail and damaging winds. A brief tornado is not out of the question, especially in Northwest Texas. Outside the primary severe weather risk zone, there is a lower chance of severe weather. While severe weather is not out of the question in those areas, the most active areas will be those in the orange zone.
In addition, some areas may experience flash flooding this evening. I’ll be manning the helm today and will be posting all warnings and interacting quite frequently on our social media platforms. We’ll also be in direct contact with the National Weather Service relaying any of your reports, so be sure to let us know about the weather in your area as its happening!
