Heavy Rains Possible As Tropical Moisture Moves In

There is a possibility for heavy rains near the area as moisture from what could become Tropical Storm Bill moves from the Gulf Of Mexico inland in Texas, and then moves near our region later in the week.  Here are possible impacts:

1. There is a 90% chance the system could become a tropical storm in the next 24 hours.  If it does, it will be named Tropical Storm Bill.  The moisture from this system could then move northward, closer to us, in the Thursday-Friday time period.

2. This system could bring heavy rains and flooding to Texas and Oklahoma, along with the Ozarks, 5 to 8 inches for some areas.  For our region, we're looking at possibly anywhere from a quarter inch to 2 inches of rain but of course there is the possibility of locally heavier totals.

3. Heavy rains and flooding are the main threats with this system!

These are the outputs of several computer forecast models.  You'll notice the majority take the heart of the system to our west and north.

There are 5 levels of risks: Marginal, Slight, Enhanced, Moderate and High Risk.Here's what they mean:
 Your can hear my forecasts each weekday on Newstalk 94.7, 95.5, 570AM and 1320AM, along with The Mix 94.7 and Willie 102.1.  Remember, when the power's out, you can still hear our forecasts and live reports on these stations, too.

UPDATED: Risk of Severe Storms Saturday!

We'll have a risk of severe storms Saturday, especially Saturday afternoon as a warm front , followed by low pressure and a cold front move through the region.  I expect at some point, we'll be placed under a severe weather watch of some type, followed by a pretty good chance we'll see some storms which will likely reach severe levels.  That being said it remains to be seen how bad and how widespread they are.

The main threats will be large hail, along with damaging winds and possible tornadoes, so stay abreast of changing conditions and forecasts through the day, especially the afternoon!

Risk of Severe Storms Today-Tonight!

Watching for possible Severe Storms this afternoon and tonight!  The biggest threats are large hail and damaging winds, however a tornado or 2 can't be ruled out.  Also, heavy rainfall is possible!!!  The NWS Storm Prediction Center has us in the Enhanced Risk area for severe storms.

This is part of the NWS' reclassification of Severe Storms Risks. It used to be only 3 catagories: Slight Risk, Moderate Risk and High Risk. Now, there are 5 levels of risks: Marginal, Slight, Enhanced, Moderate and High Risk.  Here's what they mean:
