A Tornado Watch has been issued for parts of North and Central Texas through 11 pm tonight (Tuesday night). The main threats are: few tornadoes, large hail, and damaging winds up to 70 mph. Remember, a Tornado Watch means that conditions are favorable for tornadoes and severe thunderstorms in and close to the watch area. Persons in these areas, be on the lookout for threatening weather conditions and listen for later statements and possible warnings.
The storm threat continues for the eastern portions of North and Central Texas Wednesday afternoon and the main system continues to move east. Storms will be capable of producing large hail, damaging winds and isolated tornadoes.
The weather will settle down for a day or two before the next storm system makes it way from the west. Highs will range from the 60s-70s on Thursday and 70s-80s Friday and Saturday. Storm chances will increase Saturday but it is still uncertain if there will be enough energy in the atmosphere for strong/severe storms.
Thunderstorms have developed ahead of a dryline located over West Texas along a line from Tulia to Jayton to Big Spring. Many of these thunderstorms have already become severe, but they remain well west of our county warning area. These storms will track towards the north-northeast at about 30 MPH. Meanwhile, thunderstorms will likely develop and be more scattered in nature well ahead of the dryline, generally north and west of a Decatur to Stephenville to Goldthwaite line. Any thunderstorms that develop will likely become severe quickly, and will be capable of producing large hail in excess of one inch in diameter, damaging wind gusts in excess of 60 MPH, and tornadoes. Flash flooding will also be a threat, especially if storms train over an area for an extended period of time. People along and west of U.S. Highway 281 are advised to monitor weather conditions closely over the next several hours and be prepared for rapidly changing and hazardous weather conditions.
