Weather service predicts stormy Sunday


03 April, 2017

As severe thunderstorms have intensified along the state line, conditions are right for large hail and possibly tornadoes, according to a National Weather Service bulletin.

As with any forecast, things could change quickly.

In the event of a tornado or otherwise strong weather, Edwards advised residents to seek an interior room - preferably a bathroom - and hunker down.

The northern and central parts of the state are under a high-risk alert, which the governor says is an extremely rare classification.

As of early Thursday afternoon, the Storm Prediction Center has Austin, and all of the KVUE viewing area, under the "marginal" category for severe weather, which is the lowest on their scale.

A second area of thunderstorms could develop across north Texas and Oklahoma later on in the day on Sunday as the upper-level low moves across the area.

Friday will mark the end of a week of widespread severe weather from the southern Plains to the Southeast. For those that do not experience a severe storm, heavy rain will look likely through the overnight hours and into Friday morning.

Take the news with you.

"I think we got nearly like three inches of rain total in an hour, but a good chunk of that fell on a real short amount of time", Lauritsen told Houston Public Media.

You'll want to be weather aware starting tonight. This will give you the ability to receive any watches or warnings that may be issued overnight and through the day Thursday.

The thunderstorms on Friday will not be as intense as those from earlier in the week, but some communities could face damaging wind gusts, small hail and blinding downpours. Large trees down in front yards. The high will be near 52, with wind becoming 5 to 10 miles per hour in the afternoon.
