A storm system dropping across the Southern Plains will bring a risk for severe thunderstorms in Texas today (Friday). Large hail greater than an inch in diameter and damaging wind gusts higher than 58 mph are the biggest concerns. Isolated tornadoes may occur as well along the Rio Grande River. Temperatures will warm into the 70s and 80s ahead of a cold front. Humidity will stream into the region from the Gulf of Mexico. This will help to produce several thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening, some severe. A low pressure center moving out of the Central Plains will swing a cold front through Texas. As instability climbs throughout the day, Jet Stream energy aloft will arrive. This will aid in severe thunderstorm development. Activity will continue into Rio Grande Valley and South Texas through the night. WeatherNation will keep you updated on-air and online with the latest severe weather information.
