Isolated Severe Thunderstorms and Heavy Rain Possible from Central Plains to Interior Northeast

A few of these storms could be severe and contain heavy rain that could lead to isolated flash flooding. Additional severe thunderstorms and heavy rain are expected in southwestern Texas on Wednesday. Read More >

Isolated showers and thunderstorms are expected through early this evening mainly over Central Texas. Severe weather is unlikely, though lightning, strong winds, and brief heavy downpours are possible with any stronger thunderstorms later today. Highs will be in the 80s with partly to mostly cloudy conditions expected.
An Ozone Action Day is in effect for Tuesday across the D/FW Metroplex. High levels of Ozone Air Pollution are expected. Consider activities that reduce the amount of excessive vehicle emission such as carpooling or walking/bicycling to work. High temperatures will climb into the 80s to near 90s, so be sure to remain hydrated with water if commuting to work/school on foot or via bicycle.
There will be good chances for showers and thunderstorms on Wednesday Night and through the day on Thursday. Though widespread severe weather does not appear likely at this time, but a few strong to marginally severe storms are possible along and north of the I-20 corridor. Heavy rain will also be possible, along with some minor. Check back to the forecast for updates!
Scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop later Wed night and continue through early Friday, as an upper level disturbance lifts out of the Southern Rockies. With rich Gulf moisture across the area and activity moving slowly, some brief heavy downpours are expected. Rainfall totals remain uncertain at this time, though may be high enough to result in minor flooding in some areas. Continue to monitor future forecasts for specifics regarding the rainfall and amounts.
A broad upper level trough will remain over the region moving into the weekend. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will remain possible. A few strong storms with strong winds, frequent lightning, and heavy downpours can be expected. In addition, locally heavy downpours may result in minor flooding. Amounts are uncertain this far out. Continue to monitor future forecasts regarding weather for this coming weekend.
