Severe Thunderstorm Warning for Abilene; North Texas Weather Update

2014-05-24_15-44-55

Scattered showers with a few isolated thunderstorms continue to develop this afternoon across western sections of North Texas as the atmosphere destabilizes during peak-heating. The leading edge of a line of thunderstorms extends from Stamford to the west side of Abilene to 8 miles east of Robert Lee. This line of storms has weakened since being severe earlier but is still producing heavy rain, small hail, and gusty winds as it slowly moves east at 15 to 20 MPH. I can’t rule out a severe thunderstorm warning at some point over the next hour if any storm in the line pulses up. The main issue would be quarter size hail.

Ahead or east of this line are scattered showers with a few lightning strikes. This activity is forming thanks to increasing lift due to afternoon heating destabilizing the atmosphere. These showers are not expected to become severe and most are not even producing cloud to ground lightning strikes. Moisture levels in the atmosphere remain well above normal and thus any shower will likely produce heavy rain as they slowly move north this afternoon.

Meanwhile just as I was finishing up my little update a Severe Thunderstorm Warning was issued for Taylor and Jones counties in West-Central Texas including the city of Abilene.

11:45am Update – Rain Letting Up For Some/Increasing For Others

current radar

Rain is finally letting up for southwest Texas in the Eagle Pass/Maverick County area.  The area of low pressure responsible for all this rain is slowly lifting off to the northeast and is currently positioned between Sweetwater and Wichita Falls.  It will continue to track northeast today and into Oklahoma by this evening.  A large area of scattered rain showers currently extends from the Hill Country up into northwest Texas.  Areas mainly west of the I-35 corridor will continue to see the best chances for seeing additional rainfall today, with some chance of seeing a few stronger storms develop east of the DFW metro area later this afternoon and early evening.

Below we have the latest rainfall estimates from southwest Texas with an impressive 17+ inches for the Eagle Pass area in far southwest Texas over the past 36 hours.
