Storms east on Tuesday, cold front at end of week

Storms east on Tuesday, cold front at end of week

8:30 PM Update: The severe thunderstorm watch has been canceled as storms failed to develop across the region. We will have another chance for storms on Tuesday and again, any storms that do form could become severe. Get the rest of the detailed forecast in the original blog post below.


A severe thunderstorm watch has been issued for Bailey, Briscoe, Castro, Floyd, Hale, Hall, Motley, Parmer and Swisher counties (highlighted in green in the graphic below) until 10PM. 

The main concerns with any storms that form this evening are large hail and strong wind gusts. You can keep an eye on the potential storms with the live stream of our Vipir radar by clicking here or by looking at the still image below.


Any storms that form will end shortly after sunset. We will have similar conditions again tomorrow. Morning temperatures will be in the mid 60s with afternoon temperatures in the upper 80s and lower 90s. The wind will be strong, from the southwest sustained at 20-30 mph with gusts approaching 40 mph. There will be another chance for storms, but this time the best chance will be across our eastern counties, so across the Rolling Plains. Once again, any storms that form could become severe.

A strong west wind will bring in drier air and clear us out on Wednesday. We should have another sunny and warm day on Thursday, but then moisture will increase across the region ahead of a cold front that will move through on Friday. This front will not only cool us down, but will also provide us with a chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms Friday into Saturday.


I hope you had a great start to the week! I will step you through the forecast tonight on the News at Nine and Matt will have a complete updated forecast for you tomorrow morning. -Rudy

    Angie's List Tip: Deck dos and don'ts

    May is National Deck Safety Month, so do your family a favor and get yours in shape for summer. That means a good safety check as well as basic maintenance.  Most wood decks are made of pressure-treated pine or red cedar. Make it a seasonal habit to check for weak spots, signs of wood rot and instability in posts and framework. Don’t let the surface suffer, either. “You should reseal your deck every two to three years with either a clear or semi-transparent stain...
