North/Central/East Texas – Much of the severe weather activity from this afternoon has weakened and moved south of the Dallas/Ft. Worth metro area. This area of light to moderate showers will continue to push south tonight and may bring chances of rain as far south as the northern Hill Country, Waco, Palestine and over into east Texas towards Rusk. Outflow boundaries will continue to provide a focus for additional storm development both ahead of and behind the main area of storms, but the severe threat for this region is pretty much done with for the evening with just moderate to occasionally heavy batches of rain expected into the early morning hours.
Panhandle/West Central Texas – The Storm Prediction Center has placed a portion of the western panhandle under a Slight Risk of severe weather this evening. A cluster of strong storms with 40mph gusts, copious amounts of rain and frequent lightning continues this evening mainly along and east of I-27 between Amarillo and Lubbock. This activity is expected to continue building, maintaining and moving south this evening for the next several hours before finally letting up after midnight or thereabouts. Flash flooding will be an issue, so exercise caution if you’re out driving in this part of the panhandle this evening.
