Severe Thunderstorm Watch Issued for Southwest & West-Central Texas...

The above Severe Thunderstorm Watch was just issued by the SPC in Norman, OK. It is valid until 9pm CDT this evening.

Thunderstorms are beginning to develop across the Trans-Pecos region of southwest Texas this hour:

Activity will continue to develop along and ahead of a strengthening dryline across west-central and southwest Texas this afternoon and into this evening.  Storms will generally move toward the East at 20-25 mph.

The greatest threat in this region will be hail up to the size of Baseballs.  Damaging wind gusts are also possible, and an isolated tornado or two cannot be completely ruled out from any storm that becomes well organized.

If you live across this area, please remain alert this afternoon and evening.  Make sure that you have a sheltering location picked out, and be ready to go there if threatening weather is observed or a warning is issued.
