Severe Weather Threat Sun-Mon

Area of Concern:

All of South Central Texas, with the best chances of strong to severe storms on Sunday afternoon and evening before transitioning more to a locally heavy rainfall threat Sunday evening into Monday morning.

Threats & Impacts:

Tornadoes:  A few tornadoes possible. 

Winds:  Wind gusts to 60 MPH.

Hail:  Quarter sized or greater.

Rainfall:  Average rainfall amounts of 1 to 2 inches with isolated amounts of 4 inches possible.

Timing and Overview:

A Pacific front and upper-level disturbance will move across northern Mexico into west Texas by Sunday afternoon and evening with temperatures and moisture levels ahead of the front more similar to mid-March than mid-January. Strong to severe thunderstorms are expected to develop by Sunday afternoon across the Edwards Plateau and Rio Grande Plains before moving east into the Hill Country and Interstate 35 corridor by Sunday evening. Soil moisture conditions are not expected to be conducive for flooding initially, but there is a potential for flooding by Sunday night into Monday as the front slows down and moves towards the Coastal Plains. Minor river flooding will be possible through the middle of next week as light to moderate rain showers continue into at least Tuesday.

Please stay tuned to updates on this evolving situation over the holiday weekend as changes in the forecast may shift the location and timing of the severe weather and locally heavy rainfall threat.

Confidence:

Moderate

DPS Advises Texans to Stay Cautious During Winter Weather

No Comments

AUSTIN – The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) is urging Texans to monitor weather forecasts and take necessary precautions as winter weather and cold temperatures sweep across the state. According to current weather forecasts, parts of North Texas, West Texas and the Texas Panhandle could experience wintery precipitation, including light to moderate snow accumulations, beginning late Thursday through Friday. Drivers are advised to monitor weather conditions before hitting the road, and if possible, avoid unnecessary travel in the impacted areas.

“It is important to remember that winter weather threats can emerge quickly, including low temperatures and freezing precipitation, which can endanger Texans if they’re not prepared,” said DPS Director Steven McCraw. “DPS is calling on individuals to monitor weather and take the necessary steps to stay safe and avoid hazardous conditions posed by any possible weather threats this week and throughout this winter season.”

This week and throughout the winter season, the Texas State Operations Center will continually monitor weather conditions and maintain close contact with state agencies and the National Weather Service.

DPS offers the following tips for staying safe during possible winter weather this season:

  • Monitor local weather broadcasts and follow up-to-the-minute weather conditions, at http://www.weather.gov/.
  • Purchase an all-hazards weather radio for up-to-date warnings, watches, forecasts and other hazard information.
  • Sign up for your local emergency notification system.
  • On icy roads, drive slowly, increase distance required for stopping, and avoid using cruise control.
  • Watch for downed trees and power lines across roads. If power is out, treat all intersections as four-way stops.
  • Make sure your vehicle is properly maintained before any trip.
  • Keep your gas tank full.
  • Avoid traveling when sleet, freezing rain or snow is predicted, and monitor road conditions by visiting www.drivetexas.org or by calling 1-800-452-9292.

Winterize your vehicle by checking the battery, windshield wipers (including appropriate freeze resistant-fluid), tire pressure, tire tread, fluid levels, and lubricate door and trunk locks to prevent freezing. In addition, here is a list of emergency supplies drivers can keep in their vehicle:

  • Blankets/sleeping bags, extra clothing, gloves and a hat.
  • Cell phone, radio, flashlight and extra batteries.
  • First-aid kit and pocket knife.
  • High calorie, non-perishable food and bottled water.
  • Bag of sand or cat litter to provide traction for tires.
  • Windshield scraper, tool kit, booster cables, tow rope and a shovel.

Here are some additional steps to prepare for winter weather:

  • Insulate outside faucets and pipes near outer walls.
  • Make sure that furnaces, heaters, fireplaces and wood stoves are clean, well-ventilated and in good working condition.
  • Make arrangements for proper shelter and an emergency supply of food and water for your pets and livestock.
  • Stock up on firewood and supplies, including canned goods and bottled water.
  • If you will be away from home for a long period of time, set your thermostat to 55 degrees or higher and open cabinets under sinks.
  • Make sure you have inclement weather contact numbers for schools and work.
  • Check on friends and family members whose health or age may put them at greater risk from cold weather.

During the winter season, residents can contact 2-1-1 Texas, the state’s free 24-hour helpline, to check on possible community-established warming centers or related services in their area. No matter where you live in Texas, you can dial 2-1-1 or (877) 541-7905 for community resources.
