Isolated Gusty Storms for Texas, Oklahoma Panhandles Friday
A cold front working through the Upper Midwest and Central Plains Thursday produced some large hailstones, larger than golf ball size in some spots!
While the northern end of that front is working with very little energy today as it progresses east, there is enough energy on the southern side of the front to produce a few gusty thunderstorms late this afternoon and evening. The risk is on the low end and storms will be isolated, but a few could produce gusty downdraft winds of 60 mph or greater.
Storms will slowly develop into the evening, but coverage will remain isolated. Heavy rain, gusty winds and small hail will be possible.
There will be enough energy through around 10 pm to get occasionally strong to severe storms on the tail end of the front.
After sunset and energy lessens, storms will become weaker and eventually dissipate overnight.
Due to the isolated nature of the storms, rain totals will be sparse region-wide. Locally higher rain totals of 1-2″ are possible wherever storms set up.
