The National weather Service and Storm Prediction Center are reporting a high risk for severe weather on Christmas Day for our region.
As of this morning the NWS reports:
A strong upper level storm system will move into north Texas tonight and Tuesday. A warm front will move northward through portions of southeast Texas as this occurs. This boundary may serve as a focus for strong to severe thunderstorms.
Though severe storms cannot be ruled out anywhere…at this time it appears the more favorable locations will be north of interstate 10 between the hours of 4 am and 11 am. Given the amount of wind shear in the atmosphere…the primary severe weather threat will be isolated tornadoes. Damaging winds and hail will be secondary threats.
Strong to severe storms described above should come to an end by early Tuesday afternoon.
