Busy day, sorry for the late post. That doesn’t make the forecast any less valid, however.
At 1053PM, CT, Longview was reporting a temperature of 64 degrees with overcast skies. There has been a broad area of low pressure over the central Rockies that has been importing moisture through Texas, and a lingering area of surface high pressure over the eastern Seaboard has allowed a broad swath of instability and triggering waves moving through Texas that have had a prolific history of producing severe thunderstorms.
Tomorrow, the low will emerge into the High Plains, and wit will really begin to cause problems, particularly from eastern Kansas to eastern Texas. Storms will blossom through the afternoon, and in northeastern Texas, there is a chance that the entire afternoon will be threatened by the chance for severe storms. There will be quite a bit of convective blowoff that will pollute the atmosphere into the early afternoon, which may inhibit severe storms in the afternoon, but as the cold front arrives closer to the early evening, a little bit of helicity and turning will be introduced, and severe storms and perhaps a tornado or two will be possible. in the afternoon. Fortunately, the front will pass through shortly after midnight, and Saturday will spell a break in the stormy pattern Texas has endured.
