Good morning and happy Thursday everyone!  Here’s what we have going on today weather-wise.  The Storm Prediction Center has placed a Standard Risk of severe weather across a large portion of the state with an elevated risk of very large hail across the area highlighted in red on the graphic below.   Severe weather is quite likely across portions of central Texas from the Big Country up to just south of the DFW metro area during the early part of today.  Another round of severe weather expected along the dryline in northwest Texas this afternoon during peak daytime heating.  Storms have already begun firing just east of San Angelo and will continue to increase in coverage, spreading northeast across central Texas throughout the morning hours and into the early afternoon.  Again, very large hail and damaging winds are the highest threats with any of the storms that develop across central Texas today, and across northwestern parts of the state later this afternoon.  We will continue to keep you updated as the day progresses!
