It looks like this part of the country, as well as points north, are in for a torrid time of it this evening. As the weather map below shows, the “dry line” blew up a couple of hours ago, and a line of severe storms is marching eastwards towards us. We expect them to arrive by middle to late evening.
Hurricane-force wind gusts, hail up to softball size, and flash flooding are in our forecast; and we’re under a tornado watch as well.
It’s likely to be an “interesting” night, in the sense of the fabled Chinese curse! Please keep this entire area in your prayers. Locals have long memories of earlier weather disasters, and they’d greatly prefer to avoid another one.
EDITED TO ADD: Residents of Wellington, TX are reporting baseball-size hail earlier today. This photograph’s making the rounds of social media.
I’ll pass, thanks, if given the opportunity!
