Good morning,

Here is a brief update regarding severe thunderstorm potential for the region on Friday.

Overview

There have been no major changes since the last briefing yesterday afternoon. A line of thunderstorms will move across the region Friday afternoon and evening, with some of these thunderstorms capable of producing severe weather for parts of the region. While all of Southeast Texas is at risk for experiencing strong to severe thunderstorms, best chances appear to be north of a Brenham to Cleveland line. These thunderstorms will clear the region by early Saturday morning, with no hazardous weather anticipated this weekend.

Main Hazards (in order of likelihood)

  1. Damaging winds
  2. An isolated tornado or two
  3. Locally heavy rain (overall flood threat will be low as storms will move quickly)
  4. Hail

If you happen to look at the SPC day 3 severe weather outlook, you will notice a large portion of SE Texas under a slight risk for severe weather. Based on new forecast data, here are some of our thoughts on the severe weather potential.

Bottom Line: Severe weather threat possible but may be north of Houston, from a Brenham to Cleveland line northward. Main threats: damaging straight line winds, tornadoes. Minor threat for hail. Flood potential looks low since storms will be moving quickly.

Timing: 12-3PM for areas from College Station to Columbus. 3PM-7PM for areas between Crockett and Houston.

What kind of storms? Likely a squall line which will be more intense/severe north of Houston but still possible for a weaker portion of the line to extend southward towards the coastal counties.

We will be keeping our eye on the potential for some locally heavy rain Saturday afternoon and night. At this time, the majority of computer model guidance suggests the higher rainfall amounts will mostly be confined offshore. However, those that live generally along and south of the Interstate 10 corridor should keep up with the latest forecasts. Just minor forecast changes could shift this axis further inland.
