Active Severe Weather Pattern Returns for Friday and Saturday

The threat of severe weather has come to an end across Texas. A cold front will continue to sag south tonight helping to bring a drier airmass in with it. I apologize for the lack of activity here over the last several days. Every once in a while everyone, myself included, needs to step away and take some personal time. Not only that but we completed a server transfer this morning that will hopefully speed up our website and keep us going during the busier periods. All that said we’re now back in action and looking ahead toward Friday...

Level 3 (Enhanced) Severe Weather Risk Expanded…

We now have an enhanced risk of severe weather across much of North and Northeast Texas. This includes all of the D/FW Metroplex east to Tyler, northeast to Texarkana. A level 2 risk (the standard risk level) runs east of a WIchita Falls To Graham to Stephenville line all the way to Shreveport. These risk zones simply depict the likelihood of experiencing severe weather near your location. Those in the level 3 risk have a higher severe weather chance than those in the level 2 risk. That said, confidence is increasing that we are going to have severe storms...

Thunderstorm Chances Return Tomorrow Night through Friday Night

The potential for active weather will return late tomorrow evening. Most of Thursday will be dry with a strong capping inversion in place. That strong cap will prevent daytime thunderstorm development ahead of the dryline. By late Thursday evening enough upper-level ascent will be available for elevated storms to fire up. These elevated storms will be above the cap, with the threat for tornadoes being minimal. These elevated storms will still have plenty of unstable air to work with in the mid-levels of the atmosphere. A level two risk of severe storms has been issued for the eastern Texas...
