Severe Thunderstorms Possible Across the Plains this Weekend

A large upper level system will continue to progress slowly eastward across the western United States on Saturday. Thunderstorms are expected to develop across the northern and central High Plains by Saturday afternoon. As thunderstorms develop, large hail, damaging winds, and tornadoes will be possible. Storms may evolve into a more organized system during the late evening and overnight hours. Farther south across western Texas, thunderstorms should be more isolated, possibly holding off until the evening hours as an upper level disturbance approaches the region. With any thunderstorms that develop, large hail and damaging winds will be the primary hazards.
