We’ve seen rain and storms across Northwest Texas through parts of the Big Country with a second cluster west/southwest of San Antonio towards Eagle Pass. We’ll see the chance of rain continue into the afternoon hours in the eastern half of Texas. While I don’t think we’ll have a washout there could be pockets of heavier rain. By late afternoon we’ll likely see the dryline fire up a few severe storms in the Texas Panhandle south into the Permian Basin. Thunderstorm coverage should be a bit lower than Thursday but the storms that do form will have similar impacts. Golfball size hail and localized wind gusts of 60-70 MPH will be possible.

A cluster of thunderstorms may form across the the Texas Panhandle and adjacent portions of New Mexico and Kansas this evening. This cluster would move east/southeast with a risk of gusty winds, frequent cloud to ground lightning, and heavy rain.

Severe weather outlook for Saturday

Severe weather outlook for Saturday

Thunderstorm chances continue on Saturday. Depending on how quickly the morning round of storms move east we could have a substantial severe weather threat develop across Northwest Texas, West-Central Texas, and the Big Country with a severe weather threat south into Southwest Texas. Any storms that fire up would move east/southeast eventually growing into a larger cluster. Storm chances continue on Sunday with a threat for heavy rain and potential flash flooding. It’s going to be a busy weather weekend so I advise you to check back for updates. Next week also looks active with the chance for more severe weather and heavy rains.
