Here is a brief update regarding severe thunderstorm potential for the region on Friday.
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)
- Damaging winds
- An isolated tornado or two
- Locally heavy rain (overall flood threat will be low as storms will move quickly)
