More strong to severe storms were possible late Tuesday through early Wednesday across portions of South Central Texas, according to the National Weather Service.
The threat comes just a day after a series of severe thunderstorms suddenly blasted through the area, and in the wake of a historically costly storm two weeks ago that produced hail up to 4.5 inches and more than $1.3 billion in insurance claims.
According to KENS 5 Meteorologist Paul Mireles, the most severe weather this afternoon was predicted to be in the Oklahoma area and North Texas. "What I'm expecting is this upper-level system to increase from the west and this dry line to get very active this afternoon in Northwest Texas," said Paul.
Paul said the cap was stronger in our area, creating only a slight chance of severe weather around South Texas Tuesday afternoon. But if we did see any weather in the afternoon, it would most likely be severe, said Paul.
Rain chances increased to 60 percent Tuesday evening. "Some of the storms could be strong overnight, but we should have a good looking Wednesday," said Paul.
However, any clear weather on our horizon later this week would be just before a second system formed, which was likely to bring more storms Friday into Saturday, said Paul.
According to an infographic released Tuesday by the National Weather Service, some areas of South-Central Texas could see winds up to 60 mph and hail up to 3 inches. Isolated tornadoes were possible with the storm, although much less likely.
