5:30pm Update – Texas Panhandle Region

Now our attention turns to the Texas panhandle where strong to severe storms are developing and moving south out of the northern TX/OK panhandle towards the Amarillo area.  Only one of these storm cells passing through Dalhart is currently Severe Warned, with quarter size hail and damaging 60mph winds.  This Warning for Dallam and Hartley counties is in effect until 6:00pm CDT.  Folks in this region will want to continue to stay alert for the possibility of additional severe weather as these storms are expected to continue into the overnight hours…mainly to the west of Amarillo along the TX/NM border.  Widespread severe weather is not expected, but a few could continue to be strong producing hail up to quarter size, damaging winds and frequent lightning.  For areas south of Amarillo towards Lubbock, most of these cells are expected to remain below severe limits and bring mainly rain and some gusty winds to the region.

Severe Weather Threat Continues – Panhandle/Northwest Texas Overnight – North Texas Monday Morning

Strong to severe storms continue to advance southeast across the panhandle bringing high winds, hail, frequent lightning and very heavy rainfall.  Amarillo, Canyon, Claude, Groom, Wheeler and Shamrock are all in the path of this large storm complex moving south at approximately 20mph.   We’re also beginning to see wind damage reports coming in from the northern parts of Amarillo.  Most of the northern and northeastern panhandle are still covered under the current Severe Thunderstorm Watch established earlier this afternoon.  An additional Severe Thunderstorm Watch may be activated within the next hour or so for areas south/southeast of the current Watch as additional storm development overnight is likely.  Here’s a look at current radar plus what to expect tomorrow morning as this complex of storms moves into north Texas.  With all of these storms, high winds, hail and heavy rain will be the primary threats; however, a tornado or two is not completely out of the forecast.  Have a way to receive weather warnings should any be issued for your particular location.

06/20/2014 High Winds/Hail/Torrential Rain near Levelland, TX

This was a field next to the road I was on, both flooded after this thunderstorm downburst caused 68 mph winds, dime size hail, and torrential rains! Out just north of Levelland, Texas!

(West TX) Severe Thunderstorm Watch until Midnight

A Severe Thunderstorm Watch has been issued until 12 AM for parts of the Texas Panhandle and South Plains. This watch includes Amarillo, Muleshoe, Lubbock, Spur, Childress, and Shamrock. The strongest storms will likely produce damaging wind gusts up to 70 MPH with a few hail stones up to the size of tennis balls possible. Severe thunderstorms have developed from Hereford southwest to Clovis with another storm 12 miles west of Morton. These storms are moving very slowly at about 10 to 15 MPH in various directions. Most storms will be moving east or southeast but because of weak upper level winds we could see different movements with each storm. the most organized storms this evening could pose a risk for damaging wind gusts and perhaps some large hail. Localized flash flooding is also a possibility with slow moving storms and heavy rainfall rates.
