ALERTS: Severe Thunderstorm Watches Issued for Today
Multiple severe thunderstorm watch areas have been issued this afternoon for the combination of large, damaging wind and hail. Here are the areas we are watching:
This means that these areas are at risk for the *potential* of severe thunderstorms including hail larger than one inch in diameter, winds of 58 mph or stronger, and/or a tornado.
If a warning is issued for your area, it means that a storm has formed and is about to move through (or very close to) your location! That means action must be taken immediately. In most scenarios, it means getting into the lowest level of a secure building.
Most of these thunderstorms will remain intense through 10 p.m. central, 9 mountain, but may even remain strong until midnight.
The above images show the projected radar where yellow is moderate rain and reds indicate strong to severe thunderstorms. Let’s take a look to the south in Texas!
Stay up to date with the weather happening around you, especially if you happen to be within these severe thunderstorm areas. Check our Facebook or Twitter pages for any updated information this evening!
