While a majority if the day across Texas will remain capped and storm free, during the late evening hours and overnight, we will see a risk for strong to severe storm development across the Slight Risk area outlined in the map above. Storms will likely not form until late evening along a retreating dryline which is expected to stretch diagonally from just west of Wichita Falls down into the Big Bend region. Hail and damaging winds will be the primary threats with a potential squall line of storms forming out across the Concho Valley overnight and moving east/northeast into west central Texas during the early morning hours on Thursday. The tornado threat will be low…and mainly confined to areas up in northwestern and central OK this afternoon and evening. Heavy rainfall is expected to accompany the batch of storms overnight, but widespread flooding is not expected to be an issue as the line of storms will be moving fairly quickly across the region. As always, have a way to receive weather notifications overnight! The entire team will be out chasing today across western and northern Oklahoma, so be sure to check back for updates later this afternoon!
The animated forecast loop below will take you through about 1am tomorrow morning.
