Thunderstorms are expected to move out of the mountains of New Mexico and Colorado into the Texas and Oklahoma Panhandles this afternoon into this evening. In addition, a few isolated storms may form in the area by late this afternoon. Some storms may become severe, with the best chance across the northern third of the combined Panhandles. Damaging winds will be the main threats in addition to dangerous lighting (a few lightning caused fires possible). Large hail up to 1.5 inches and heavy downpours cannot be ruled out especially in the northern third of the combined Panhandles.
Thunderstorms will continue to move east going into the evening and overnight. The severe hail threat will start to diminish as the threat for damaging winds continues later in the evening.
Expect record breaking temperatures once again today. In addition, today will be the 7th day in a row with temperatures at or above 100 degrees for Amarillo. Stay out of the heat.
Evening to overnight thunderstorms will be possible tomorrow. Some of the storms early on may become severe with damaging winds and large hail. Greatest chance for severe thunderstorms will be the western combined Oklahoma and Texas Panhandle to include the neighboring far eastern New Mexico.
Record high temperatures expected through Tuesday! Please avoid being outside for prolonged periods at a time. Drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration and stay inside if possible in air conditioned buildings.
