All types of storms are possible.
AUSTIN, Texas — While we’ve been mostly dry for most of the week, that’s expected to change as we move into Friday night and Saturday.
Many high schools have moved their previously scheduled Friday night games to Thursday night, and based on the latest projections, that seems like a wise decision.
Friday appears to start with some scattered rain showers which could cause some problems for the morning commute. Temperatures at this point appear to be somewhere in the low to mid 70’s due to a strong southerly current.
In the afternoon we expect a sunny, dry lull with highs in the upper 80’s. However, there is a certain deceptive factor associated with this.
With the added moisture in the atmosphere, Friday isn’t a day you want the sun to shine, as the day’s warming could cause this storm line to strengthen as it nears the KVUE lookout area.
Later on Friday evening we expect things to drop off a bit as the frontal border approaches. Currently we expect this line to approach the KVUE viewing area around 8pm, but as the event gets closer we will iron this out further.
We expect this storm line to be gone at least by sunrise Saturday morning. However, models have indicated faster movement of the potential thunderstorm line, and some models have this storm out of KVUE view even before midnight.
With the added instability ahead of the front and its strength as it slides through Friday night, we see primarily a damaging wind threat, although large hail and isolated tornadoes can by no means be ruled out.
As a result, almost all KVUE visibility is below a 2 out of 5 or “slight” risk of severe weather.
Stay tuned to the KVUE Storm Team for the latest information on this evolving situation.
