Mostly quiet on the radar this evening. By far, the heaviest activity is currently located across the northeastern Texas panhandle and over into northern and central Oklahoma. This area of storms across the northeastern Texas panhandle and into Oklahoma is expected to maintain itself and drift slowly southeast into the late evening hours and potentially well into tomorrow morning. Activity is not expected to become very severe overnight, but outflow boundaries from whatever is left chugging along by tomorrow morning will have a material impact on storm development along the Red River and into northern Texas by tomorrow afternoon. That said, we won’t delve much into what’s expected tomorrow afternoon and evening until what happens overnight, with regard to precipitation and remnant outflow boundaries, becomes more apparent.
For tonight…mostly quiet with just a few chances for storms across parts of the Texas panhandle, and by morning…we could see some rain and a few storms drift south across the Red River into north Texas. Lows tonight will be fairly seasonal with a good amount of return moisture flow coming in from the Gulf of Mexico.
Tomorrow morning, we should be looking at remnant showers arriving across northern and northeast Texas. Again, residual outflow boundaries from these overnight and early morning storms will determine where additional storms fire up, but the most likely location will be along and north of I-20, across the southern panhandle and across north/northeast Texas. Isolated showers will also be possible tomorrow afternoon for coastal areas and northeast Texas. Be sure to check back for additional updates on Friday’s rain chances in our next blog tomorrow morning. Highs tomorrow, seasonal and quite warm with heat index readings along the coast ranging from 101 around Houston/Galveston to 104 down near Brownsville. Definitely keep that in mind if you’ve got outdoor plans tomorrow afternoon or evening and drink plenty of water beforehand!
