After a very busy weather day in the Texasstrong> Panhandle including the first December tornado in recorded history (in the TXstrong> Panhandle), the stormsstrong> have calmed down and are no longer . This thin linestrong> of showersstrong> and thunderstorms will continue to fly eastward at 50strong> to 60 MPHstrong>. That places this linestrong> near the Interstate 35 corridor by 10 to 11 PM. The air over North Texasstrong> is fairly stable, thus weather is not expected. However, very strong windsstrong> just above the surface may be able to reach the ground as the showersstrong> move through. That could cause windsstrong> of 35 to 50strong> MPHstrong> in some locations. High resolution weather models do show the linestrong> of stormsstrong> intensifying a bit as they reach higher moisture values just east of I-35. We’ll have to watch the trends over the coming hours to make sure we don’t have any more surprises today.
