The National Weather Service has issued a severe thunderstorm watch for a majority of the Big Country and Concho Valley. This watch goes until 9 AM. Fort Stockton, Midland, Odessa, San Angelo, Brownwood, and Abilene are a few towns included. The strongest storms this morning may produce very large hail up to the size of tennis-balls and localized wind gusts over 70 MPH. Any storms that develop south of a warm front (generally south of an Ozona to Junction line) could also become tornadic, but that’ll be handled by a separate tornado watch if it becomes more likely.
