Tonight, storms are blasting into West Texas with all modes of severe weather possible–including a few tornadoes.
This line will be moving east and arrive here for Wednesday morning.
Because of this line of storms, the Storm Prediction Center has us under a “Marginal” risk on Wednesday—this means a few isolated severe storms possible.
Looking closer with Futurecast for Wednesday, the line of storms hitting North & Central Texas before daybreak. Ahead of that line, a few showers and storms could occur ahead of it in East Texas.
After sunrise Wednesday, the line of storms moving in. Note the line nature of the storms—which means that damaging wind gusts would be the primary threat. A bumpy morning will be expected.
By midday and into the afternoon, storms shift east, and we begin to clear up. Now, rain and some storms could still be possible in far Deep East Texas through the late afternoon. The rest of the area, sunshine is expected to return and it will be windy and warm.
With this next round of rain, this is not a big event for us. Amounts will be similar to Saturday’s storms—less than inch for most locations.
