Weekend Forecast Includes Severe Weather Threat

(April 26, 2014) Central Texas residents may want to keep an eye on the sky beginning Saturday night as a dry line approaches that could trigger severe storms capable of producing high winds, hail and isolated tornadoes.

The primary severe weather threat late Saturday night is mainly west of the Interstate 35 corridor, but the threat will shift toward the east on Sunday.

Saturday evening there’s a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms, but the probability will increase through the overnight hours.

Showers and thunderstorms are possible Sunday morning and could become severe Sunday afternoon before the system moves out of the region.

By Monday it should be mostly sunny.

The disturbance, meanwhile, was bringing the threat of blowing dust and a heightened fire danger to the South Plains and Panhandle.

The greatest threat of severe weather, including tornadoes, will be on Sunday in the Ark-La-Tex area around Texarkana.
