SAN ANGELO, Texas — After a few days of sunshine and daytime highs in the 80s, showers and storms on the strong to severe side are looking more likely by the end of the week and the first part of the weekend.
Low pressure will setup across northeast Colorado and the central plains during the days. A dry line will setup across the western half of Texas with dewpoint values in the low-to-mid 60s out ahead of it. That will provide enough fuel for showers and supercell thunderstorms to develop.
These towering storms could produce very large hail, damaging winds and could quickly turn tornadic.
As this area of low pressure moves east, this will change the upper-level dynamics. This could have a couple different solutions and time will tell which solution is more likely. For now, showers and thunderstorms will be more scattered through the mid-morning and afternoon on Saturday. Moisture profiles suggest a flash flooding event with a very saturated airmass still in place.
We are continually fine-tuning this forecast and will provide updates as the event draws near.
Enjoy your week!
