Good afternoon,

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

Changes Since Last Update: Strong southerly winds of 15 to 25 mph with gusts above 30 mph possible during the day Friday ahead of any thunderstorm activity. Severe weather potential unchanged. Added mention of lightning with storms.

IMG_3301

Overview
We are still thinking 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. Please see the timing graphic for more details for timing and hazards.

There is still a chance the line of storms could extend to Houston and the coast in the evening. The severe weather threat should still be primarily north of Houston. Still strong storms could be possible embedded in the line with gusty winds and lightning possible.

Main Hazards (in order of likelihood)
1. Damaging winds & Lightning
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.

IMG_3245

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.
