Flooding Rain & More Severe Weather for the South

17 May 2016, 1:00 pm


Monday brought severe storms to parts of the south alongside with torrential downpours. While there were a few tornado reports across the Panhandle of Texas, the big weather headline yesterday was the large hail that fell across Masterson, TX.


Tuesday will bring another round of tropical-like downpours to parts of Texas and Louisiana. Flash Flooding will be the more widespread threat, especially along the gulf coast region while southeastern sections of Texas could additionally see strong to even severe storms materializing by the afternoon hours. In terms of severe weather, hail and high winds will be possible;however, a larger tornado or two cannot be ruled out, primarily inside the orange enhanced-shaded area.


Why all the wet weather? To put it simple, it has been a parade of one slow-moving storm system after the next. Another cold front will sag south out of New Mexico and into Texas by late Tuesday drawing ina relentless amount of moisture from the Gulf of Mexico aiding in the development of more storms and heavy rain. This front will remain nearly stationary over the next 36-48 hours which calls for an unsettled atmosphere until Thursday for parts of the Southern Plains so expect showers and storms until then.

By Friday, this front will begin to pick a little speed and move east. This will shift copious amounts of heavy rain along the gulf coast region from Louisiana to parts of the southeast so the end of the work-week looks to be soggy for much of the region.
