A Severe Thunderstorm WATCH is in effect until 10pm for portions of western north Texas. This includes the cities of Colorado City, Abilene, Cisco, Throckmorton, Ballinger, San Angelo and surrounding towns. Thunderstorms have formed this afternoon west of Abilene near Sweetwater. Large hail up to 2 inches and damaging wind gusts are the primary threats. The threat for tornados looks to be very low and not the greatest risk. Additional scattered to isolated storm development is possible this afternoon within the Watch area and they will tend to slowly drift east northeast throughout the afternoon. Not everyone within the Watch area will be impacted by strong to severe storms this afternoon, but if you happen to get one developing in your area, it could pack a punch, so stay weather aware this afternoon and evening!
