Overnight Storms for the Southern Plains

7 May 2021, 6:45 pm

We have seen some severe storms from earlier Friday and will continue to bring the risk down through the overnight hours. We will continue seeing storms into this weekend. A storm system moving through the West will move towards the middle of the nation, bringing the potential for severe weather.

There is a marginal risk (level 1 on a scale of 1 to 5) for severe thunderstorms today (Friday) in from southeastern Wyoming southward to southern New Mexico and western Texas. Strong wind gusts and large hail are the primary threats.

By tonight (Friday night), most storms will have petered out with a lack of daytime energy, and we’ll be watching for pockets of heavy rain.

We will have updates on-air and online on the potential for severe weather. Check back with WeatherNation for updates.
