Gearing Up for Widespread Rain/Storms Beginning Sunday

The upper level storm system that brought widespread rain to Texas on Monday and Tuesday is in our rear-view mirror. In its wake we’ll enjoy much quieter weather for a couple of days. High temperatures this afternoon will top out in the middle 50s to lower 60s. Temperatures will warm back above-average by the weekend with highs in the 60s, 70s, and 80s. Those above-average temperatures will continue into the early part of next week as our weather becomes quite unsettled. We’ll have a fast-moving upper level storm system move overhead tomorrow night and into Friday. We’ll see scattered...

Late Morning Peak Outside & Afternoon Precipitation Forecast

As indicated in our blogs yesterday, this morning certainly did end up being eventful in parts of Southeast Texas. We likely had several brief tornadoes occur. The National Weather Service in Houston will be out this afternoon conducting damage surveys. They’ll determine how many tornadoes occurred. So far I haven’t heard of any overly-severe damage, but there has been structure damage and lots of trees downed. The line of thunderstorms responsible for the severe weather in the Houston metro this morning is now moving into extreme Southeast Texas. There remains the possibility of severe weather in the form of damaging wind gusts and isolated tornadoes. Wind shear values remain strong, but the linear mode should keep the tornado threat limited to brief spinups. Of-course we’ll have to watch for any isolated storms out ahead of the line over the next hour or two. The strongest segments of the squall line may produce damaging wind gusts over 60 MPH and brief tornadoes. The intensity of the line has decreased over the last hour, but we’ll watch it until it moves east of Texas. Light to moderate rain will continue behind the squall line for about two hours. Back in the Texas Panhandle we have light to locally moderate snow falling as moisture wraps around on the back edge of our upper level low. We have a winter weather advisory in...

New Tornado Watch Issued for East/Southeast Texas

The Storm Prediction Center has issued a new tornado watch for portions of East and Southeast Texas. This watch runs south of a Nacogdoches to Center line and runs south all the way to the coast. Lufkin, Pineland, Woodville, Jasper, Newton, Kirbyville, Lumberton, Beaumont, and Port Arthur are included in this watch. I do believe the highest threat for severe weather, including the threat for a couple of tornadoes, will be along and south of a Woodville to Newton line, but strong winds are certainly possible throughout the watch zone. Have a way to receive severe weather warnings and move to the safe place as the line of storms approaches.
