Strong Storms Possible Tonight and Monday
Severe Potential (Source:KWES)

(KWES) - We have a chance to see some isolated storms today mainly in the western half of the viewing area. Some storms could try to become strong to marginally severe. If we do get a severe storm, the main threats will be hail around 1" in diameter and 60 mph wind gusts. The best chance to see severe weather should be in the late afternoon to early evening as temperatures hit their peak.

Tomorrow will bring another slight chance of rain mainly for the Permian Basin. Rain chances are slim tomorrow with only a 10% coverage expected. If we get a severe storm tomorrow, it could be pretty strong bringing large hail and damaging wind gusts. Right now, the main limiting factor for this activity is the amount of moisture we will have in place. Slight rain chances could continue through the rest of the week as the dryline moves back and forth.

Photo Legend:

  • Light Green: Non-severe storms (small hail and gusty winds)
  • Dark Green: Marginally severe storms (1" hail and 60 mph winds)
  • Yellow: Slight risk of severe storms (1-2" hail and 60-70 mph winds)
