More showers and thunderstorms in the forecast today, tonight, Friday into Saturday morning. I think the pattern will start to dry out some Saturday afternoon and Sunday. Until then the threat for flash flooding and some severe weather will continue!
Here's the severe weather risk for today from the National Weather Service in OKC. Main threats heavy rain, large hail and damaging winds. The tornado threat is low but not zero.
The showers and thunderstorms from last night and early this morning stabilized the atmosphere limiting the atmospheric instability and therefore limiting the severe weather risk somewhat this afternoon. So the big question is, will the atmosphere recover enough for more severe weather and flash flooding tonight. Hard to say but already the next wave of thunderstorms is developing in the Texas Panhandle and moving east northeast toward southwestern Oklahoma. There's a decent chance that most of this next round of thunderstorms near Lubbock will track to our south across North Texas but still too early to call exactly how this will play out tonight.
