Severe Thunderstorm Watch Number 350 NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK 450 PM CDT Sun Jun 9 2019 The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a * Severe Thunderstorm Watch for portions of Southeast Texas * Effective this Sunday afternoon and evening from 450 PM until 1000 PM CDT. * Primary threats include... Scattered damaging winds and isolated significant gusts to 75 mph possible Isolated very large hail events to 2 inches in diameter possible SUMMARY...Intense supercells over central Texas should spread south-southeast as they consolidate into a larger cluster this evening. Damaging winds and large hail will be the primary hazards.
A severe storm north of Franklin is moving south/southeast toward Franklin and Bryan. An outflow boundary is also moving south. In addition to ongoing storms that boundary may help new storms develop as it moves south through the Brazos Valley. The strongest storms have a history of producing damaging winds over 70 MPH and golfball size hail. The storm approaching Evant is moving south toward Killeen – and that storm is a big meanie and quite dangerous. I doubt it’ll be dissipating any time soon, so it could eventually pose a threat to the Austin metro in about two hours. It may produce hurricane-force straight-line winds along with wind-driven damaging hail.
We’ll also be watching for additional storms to fire up this evening across the Hill Country and Concho Valley. That may not happen until we’re closer to 7 PM. Storms ongoing in the southern Trans-Pecos may have small hail and gusty winds, but otherwise, they’re not doing much at the moment.
