A cluster of storms will arrive from the northwest Thursday morning and continue moving east/southeast through the afternoon. Severe weather and renewed flooding are expected with this activity. The main threats will be damaging winds with a lesser threat for large hail. The tornado threat will remain low. Keep an eye on the weather tomorrow, and ensure you have multiple ways to receive warnings. Don't drive through flooded roadways!
The potential for severe weather will return late Thursday as another round of thunderstorms enters from the west or northwest. Large hail, damaging winds, and locally heavy rain will be possible, especially west of the I-35 corridor. The main time window for severe weather will be late Thursday night through Friday afternoon. There is potential for another round of storms to move through during the afternoon, but this is still uncertain. Continue to check back and stay weather aware!
Through this weekend into next week, expect daily chances for storms. The potential for severe storms exists, but its too early to go into exact details just yet. Persistently high humidity and slowly warming near-normal temperatures will force peak heat indices closer to 100 degrees next Monday through Wednesday. Make sure to stay weather aware and check back for new updates!
