Thursday is a First Alert Weather Day... Isolated to Scattered Severe Storms Possible

(KWES) - Thursday is a First Alert Weather Day for West Texas.

Isolated to scattered storms are expected this afternoon and evening.

We are looking at around a 20% coverage of the viewing area. As we heat up this afternoon, storms are expected to increase in intensity.

Our main threats will be large hail around or over quarter size and wind gusts around 60 mph. Our northeastern counties will have a slightly higher risk with hail up to 2" in diameter and up to 70 mph wind gusts possible.

Storms should move east and dissipate later this evening once the sun goes down.
