(W TX) Tornado Watch In Effect Until 11 PM CDT

2014-05-26_15-06-11

The Storm Prediction Center has issued a Tornado Watch until 11 PM for parts of the South Plains into the Big Country and Southwest Texas. Lubbock, Odessa, Abilene, Big Lake, San Angelo, Fort Stockton, Del Rio, Junction, and Eagle Pass are a few towns included. Like the past few days thunderstorms have begun to develop once again as afternoon heating causes the atmosphere to destabilize. The primary threats with the strongest thunderstorms will be large hail and heavy rain. One or two tornadoes are possible with any storm that is able to root itself on a boundary left over from previous storms. Storms will move in a north/northeasterly direction with dominant supercells possibly moving more due east.
