(Today and tonight)
One more round of showers and thunderstorms will move across West
Central Texas as the main upper trough moves across the area.
Latest radar loop was showing a batch of rain with embedded areas of
heavy rain approaching the West Central Texas from Big Lake and
Iraan. Some of this rain could become heavy and result in
localized flash flooding of low lying areas through this morning.
For this reason, continued the flash flood watch through 10 AM.
Precipitation should end by this afternoon from west to east.
The next upper level shortwave trough should bring another round
of storms on Monday. With CAPE values approaching 2000 J/KG and
0-6KM shear values of 50KTS, there is a slight risk of severe
thunderstorms developing with large hail, damaging winds and
Look for a break from the storms Tues-Wed as weak shortwave ridging
takes place. Then as a broad upper trough develops across the
southwestern U.S, it will allow upper level disturbances to track
across the region Thursday through Friday. This pattern will
result in chances for thunderstorms each of those days. By
Saturday, a cold front is progged to move into the area and as it
will likely continue the chances for thunderstorms for next weekend.
Tuesday should be the warmest day with temps near 90. With plenty
of moisture and cloud cover draped across West Central Texas
through this week, temperatures will remain mostly below normal.
