Storms continue to progress southward across West Texas. The strongest of those storms are capable of producing damaging winds, hail, and localized heavy rainfall. You can keep track of all storms using our free HD interactive weather radar here on our website.
Scattered thunderstorms are beginning to develop in Texoma. Those storms are being generated in part by an outflow boundary moving south across the Red River. Sattilite imagery shows another outflow boundary in eastern Oklahoma that is moving south. That boundary should help spark additional storms over the next several hours. If you’ve stepped outside you’ll know its more humid than a sauna. All that moisture and heat has resulted in an unstable airmass across North Texas and Northeast Texas.
Storms that fire up could become strong to severe with a threat of localized damaging winds, small hail, heavy rain, and an obnoxious amount of lightning. If storms in eastern Oklahoma or in Texoma are able to organize into a cluster we could see a slightly higher threat of damaging straight-line winds. Those storms would continue moving south through the evening hours.
