The Storm Prediction Center has indicated a severe weather watch is being considered for portions of Northwest and western North Texas. Severe thunderstorms are underway across the South Plains now extending east into West-Central Texas. These storms are expected to continue progressing east this afternoon and eventually may form into a squall line. The primary threat with the strongest storms for the next few hours will be hail up to the size of golfballs, a tornado or two, and flooding rains. As thunderstorms organize into a cluster/line this evening we’ll see the threat for damaging wind gusts increase along with a continued hail and flooding threat.
