Severe Weather Set to Impact Texas This Week


spc day 2

day 3


A multi-day severe weather outbreak looks to be concentrated in central and eastern Texas over the next several days, with large hail, strong winds and tornadoes all possible this week, starting on Wednesday.

A cold front dropping from the north will kick off stronger thunderstorms on Wednesday afternoon, targeting Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, Austin and San Antonio, Texas, Oklahoma City, Shreveport and New Orleans, Louisiana. The primary hazards with these storms will be large hail (2″+ in diamater) and strong winds of 60 miles-an-hour or greater, but isolated tornadoes, particularly in north-central Texas and far southern Oklahoma during the evening hours, are also possible.

By Thursday, the threat for storms shifts further south along with the cold front, including much of the I-35 corridor and east, encompassing much of southeastern Texas and southern Louisiana. Dallas, New Orleans, San Antonio and Houston could all again be in line for stronger storms, with similar impacts from Wednesday likely for Thursday.

By Friday, however, stronger storms from eastern Texas into Louisiana and Oklahoma – again roughly I-35 on east – could contain more of a tornado potential due to stronger jet stream winds and a deeper upper-level trough. The storms move into the southeast for Saturday before more storms could re-fire across the southern Plains for Sunday and Monday.
