More Storms Coming

It looks like we will see another round of thunderstorms Thursday evening.  A cold front now entering the Texas Panhandle will move eastward overnight, and by morning will begin to generate storms in Oklahoma.  Those storms will move south through the day, and by evening should be affecting our portion of north Texas.

In the meantime, a strong south wind will continue to pump warm, humid air into our area.  This provides good fuel for thunderstorm development.  But there is one ingredient that is different from what we saw last week.  The upper level low, with its attendant energy and cold air aloft will pass north of Texas this time, through the central plains.  As a result the atmosphere won’t be as unstable as it would if the low tracked farther south and across Texas.

We will still see storms, and a few of them could produce hail and strong gusty winds.  But I don’t anticipate the same kind of severe weather outbreak as we saw last week.

By the way, we will be airing our severe weather special, Tracking Texas Weather again this weekend.    It will be airing in its entirety at 6:30 pm Saturday.   This is the first weather special we have ever broadcast in HD.  You can see great video of severe storms, and also learn all about how you can use our latest interactive tools for radar.  You can even get radar on your cell phone!  I hope you will be watching.
