“It’s May and its severe weather season,” Paul Yura with the National Weather Service advises. “Everybody needs to be prepared to possibly see and deal with severe weather the next 36 hours, regardless of where they live ... Stay vigilant.”
Severe thunderstorms with large hail and damaging winds are the main threats, but isolated heavy rain, which could lead to isolated and brief flash flooding/flooding, also is a concern mainly east of I-35.
Storms are possible Thursday from 2-10 p.m. and Friday 2-8 p.m.
Overall chances of rain are higher in the east, lower out west. Large hail and damaging winds will be the primary threat. Chances of rain today will remain high over the east as very humid air from the Gulf and Pacific moves across the eastern sections of Texas. This will also allow for some isolated heavier rain totals, which could bring some brief flooding issues.
More heating Friday afternoon could trigger some isolated to widely scattered thunderstorms.
