All remains quiet this afternoon as the cap remains strong and is preventing thunderstorms from developing. The atmosphere is strongly unstable and supportive of severe thunderstorms if the cap were to break. At this time data indicates that we’re going to be hard pressed to get the cap to break today. There is a low chance that one or two storms will be able to form just east of the dryline in North and Central Texas. Should any storms be able to break the cap they will be in an environment quite favorable for supercells. Destructive hail up to the size of baseballs, locally damaging winds over 60 MPH, and an isolated tornado would be possible if we got any storms today. In all likelihood we’ll stay capped today with no storms but we’ll keep an eye on things and post updates as needed.
