Severe weather threat returns to West Texas

Severe weather threat returns to West Texas

We are heading into the busiest part of our severe weather season over the next couple of days across West Texas.

The threat for strong storms begins Saturday evening across the Permian Basin.

As the dry line pushes into our area it will trigger the development for storms as we head into the evening hours.

The threat for severe weather will continue into Sunday. Storms will begin early Sunday morning with the highest potential for severe weather being between 10 am - 1 pm Sunday afternoon.

We will also see the threat for severe weather as we start the work-week on Monday.

Storms will begin early Monday morning with the highest chance of severe weather between 9 am - 3 pm Monday afternoon.

The threat for tornadoes is low, but the storms will be capable of producing:

  • Large Hail (quarter-size+)
  • Strong Winds (60+ mph)
  • Frequent Lightning
  • Localized Flash Flooding.

As we enter a busy portion of our severe weather season it is important to remain weather aware.
