Wednesday, April 17th Forecast: Strong storms possible tonight, pleasant weekend coming up!

Weather Forecasts

Tonight: A dry-line is set up in the eastern Big Country currently. This boundary will help to spark up some potentially strong to severe storms for the far eastern portions of the Big Country by the evening and early overnight hours.

Our biggest threats will be large hail around 1″ in diameter and strong wind gusts. These will move quickly out of the Big Country, generally before midnight tonight. Low temperatures will dip down into the mid to low 50’s.

The severe risk outlook hasn’t changed much from yesterday with the majority of the eastern counties in a marginal (1/5), some in a slight (2/5) and parts of Mills and Comanche counties in an enhanced (3/5) risk. 

Thursday: We could see an isolated shower or two heading into the afternoon hours for some in the Big Country. Winds are going to ramp up even stronger than today, with gusts as high as 40 mph and sustained winds around 20 to 30 mph most of the day. High temperatures will be a little cooler than the last few days, with high temperatures staying in the lower 70’s for most of us. 

Future Weather Discussion: After we bottom out our temperatures tomorrow, they’ll continue to rise back to the lower 80’s for this upcoming Easter weekend. Winds will relax slightly on Friday but that’s about it, as stronger winds will also return for the weekend. Skies are expected to remain sunny and mostly cloud-free for the next several days.
