Strong to Severe Thunderstorms Possible Across Southern Plains on Tuesday

Thunderstorms are expected across the Southern Plains ahead of a slow moving cold front. Daytime heating and several outflow boundaries from Monday's activity will allow for the development of isolated to scattered thunderstorms. Primary impacts with these storms will be damaging winds, large hail, frequent lightning, and heavy rainfall. Flooding will also be possible as a result of thunderstorms over the past several days.

SPC Convective Outlook for Wednesday

 

Excessive Rainfall Possible for Southern Plains Wednesday through Saturday

A broad area of low pressure will move slowly eastward across Texas mid to late week. Ahead of this low Gulf moisture will stream northward into the region. As a result, a prolonged, and potentially significant, rainfall event is forecast over much of Texas from Wednesday through Saturday. Clusters of showers and thunderstorms will be common over the region through this period. The placement of the heaviest precipitation on any given day will likely be dictated by when and where widespread thunderstorms occurred the day before, and this of course adds uncertainty to the forecast. At present, widespread rainfall totals of 3 to 5 inches are forecast across this outlook area for the Wednesday through Saturday time period. However, it is critical to note that conditions will be favorable for localized very heavy rainfall event to occur within this larger area. If that occurs, it is not out of the question for some locations to receive 10 inches or more of rain during this four-day period. It is not possible to pin down the exact location and timing of these more localized extreme rainfall totals at this time but it is critical to keep in mind that they will be possible later this week. Given that significant flooding is ongoing across portions of the region, mainly southeast Texas, and that rainfall for the past thirty days has been much above average, additional flooding is a significant possibility across much of this outlook area as we go through the next few days.

Strong to Severe Thunderstorms Possible on Wednesday Across the Great Lakes

Isolated strong to severe thunderstorms are possible Wednesday afternoon ahead of a cold front. While ongoing convection will limit the intensity of thunderstorms, moisture and above average temperatures will allow for the potential for isolated strong to severe thunderstorms.
