Scattered Storms with Hail/Wind possible in Southeast & South TX through this evening

The potential for a few severe storms is increasing this afternoon across parts of Central Texas into the Brazos Valley. A severe weather watch is possible, but one does not seem to be imminent. What we’ll be watching for over the coming hours is increased thunderstorm development as a cool front moves south from South-Central and Central Texas east into Southeast Texas. Conditions north of the front are considerably cooler and below-average for late May. Conditions south of the front are relatively unstable and in an enviornment with enough wind shear to support organized storms. Coverage will remain isolated...

Squall Line Expected This Evening in West Texas, Big Country, & Concho Valley

A low-end threat for a brief/weak tornado will continue along the Southeast Texas coast through the afternoon hours. The primary focus for this severe weather outlook will be in the southwestern Texas Panhandle, West Texas, Permian Basin, eastward into the Concho Valley and Big Country. Those regions are where the Storm Prediction Center have outlined the “standard” level 2 risk of severe weather. Midland, Lubbock, San Angelo, and Abilene are a few of the larger towns included. A “marginal” level 1 risk includes the Hill Country, North Texas, and most of the Texas Panhandle. Dalhart, Amarillo, Childress, Wichita Falls,...

Stormy Sunday Night Forecast

Severe thunderstorms pounded Laredo earlier this afternoon. Hail up to the size of baseballs accompanied the first storm along with wind gusts up to 75 MPH. A second storm not long after rolled in with more hail and damaging wind gusts. I’ve seen a few photos from town showing damage to structures, including a fire station. Never underestimate supercells rolling across the border into Texas. They tend to form during the mid-afternoon hours int he higher elevations of Northeast Mexico and move east into Southern Texas. We’ve got a sub-severe storm moving into Texas just north of Eagle Pass and a line of severe storms passing just south of the border near McAllen. Light to moderate rain is moving northeast across southern North Texas into Central Texas. Other patchy rain/storms are moving northeast across Southeast Texas into South-Central Texas. Our expectation is that thunderstorm will tend to increase in coverage late tonight, generally after midnight, cross South-Central Texas east into Southeast Texas. A boundary is sitting across both of those regions. That boundary will tend to focus convective coverage late tonight. We could see scattered showers and storms extend as far north as Interstate 20 tonight from the Big Country east to D/FW, and along/south of Interstate 30 in Northeast Texas. A few of these storms may be strong with quarter size hail and localized damaging wind gusts. We...

Eagle Pass, Crystal City, Cotulla, Beeville, Victoria, Kenedy, Pearsall, Hondo, Uvalde, San Antonio, and Cuero are a a few towns included. The strongest storms through the afternoon hours may produce large hail up to the size of tennis-balls, localized wind gusts up to 70 MPH, and heavy rainfall. An isolated tornado is not out of the question. Storms located between Uvalde and Hondo should generally move to the east/southeast and possibly become a small cluster of severe storms as they move into a relatively unstable airmass.
