Severe storm and flash flood risk Friday night, early Saturday

April 24th, 2015 at 4:32 pm by under Weather

With more precipitation forecast for this evening and tonight we have issued a flash flood watch for areas east of I-35 along and south of Highway 90. These areas have already seen 1-4 inches of rain today. Another 1 to 2 is forecast with pockets of up to 4 inch rainfall totals possible.

There is a Slight Risk of Severe Weather over much of South Central Texas later this afternoon and evening. The main threats will be heavy locally rainfall which could result in flash flooding followed by damaging winds and large hail. Area of concern for locally heavy rains is along and east of a Bastrop to San Antonio to Hondo line. New 1 to 2 inches of rainfall are possible with isolated 4 inches.

Severe storm risk continues through Friday night

Risk of severe storms increases Friday

April 23rd, 2015 at 7:04 am by under Weather

4-23 omni svr

After only a very slim chance of storms Thursday, expect more numerous thunderstorms and a risk of severe weather on Friday.

Storms are expected to fire by late morning Friday around Central Texas, and continue on-and-off in some areas through sunset Friday night. This may impact outdoor plans and rush hour commutes as you wrap up your work week.

Risks from the severe thunderstorms that may form include:

  • Large, damaging hail
  • Damaging wind gusts over 60 mph
  • Funnel clouds / tornadoes

Track the storms with the KXAN Interactive Radar, and stay on top of your latest First Warning Forecast.


Happy Earth Day!

Today is the 45th annual Earth Day, a day set aside to show support for environmental protection.

Check out Austin Give 5, an “Earth Day campaign where Austin businesses pledge to donate 5% of their gross sales from that day to benefit five Austin environmental non-profits.” Last year’s efforts raised more than $100,000! The full KXAN story can be found here.

Study: Thunderstorms more likely in cities than rural areas

April 20th, 2015 at 9:40 am by under Weather

The following is an article from Wired.com examining a meteorological research study.

The study found that cities are more likely to have thunderstorms form overhead than are rural areas. Possible reasons that the study states contribute to the observed trend include skyscrapers helping push air upward, higher air pollution increasing the number of cloud-forming particulates in the air, and the “urban heat island” effect increasing rising air.

It should be noted that the research study only examined Atlanta, Georgia and surrounding rural areas — and the study findings cannot necessarily be replicated for other major cities.

AH, CITY LIFE: The culture! The food! The music! The thunderstorms! Wait, what? Thunderstorms? Yes, that’s right: You can add weather to the list of things that are more exciting in the city than in the sticks.

Ok, not all cities. But in regions like the American south, normal urban attributes like heat, pollution, and tall buildings could stir up more storms. New research examined nearly two decades of meteorological data from Georgia and found thunderstorms were slightly more likely to form over Atlanta than the surrounding rural areas. Through modeling and other research, meteorologists have known about the connection between cities and storms for decades, but this is the first time data has shown the phenomena in action.

Severe storms possible into Saturday evening

April 18th, 2015 at 3:20 pm by under Weather

Severe storms began developing just west of the Hill Country by mid-afternoon Saturday.  Tune to KXAN-TV for live severe storm coverage through the evening.

Click for latest Composite Reflectivity radar image from the Austin/San Antonio, TX radar and current weather warnings

A severe thunderstorm watch for the Hill Country, Edwards Plateau, and northern Rio Grande Plains sections of South Central Texas is in effect until 9 PM CDT. This does not include metro Austin or San Antonio. The main threats will be wind gusts up to 70 to 70 mph and hail up to golf ball size. Localized flash flooding may also occur in areas where heavy rainfall occurred yesterday. Tornadoes are less likely, but cannot be ruled out.

There is an enhanced-slight risk of severe storms for most of South-Central Texas with the highest confidence in the gray hatched area. The main threats will be hail to the size of half dollars and and damaging winds up to 60 mph. Locally heavy rainfall will also be possible which may lead to isolated flooding concerns. The best timing for severe weather will be in the 3pm to 11pm range.

Slight chance of severe weather continues

April 18th, 2015 at 10:34 am by under Weather

Here’s the latest update from our friends at the National Weather Service office in New Braunfels:

1

Good Morning South-Central Texas Partners,

Headline:

…Slight Risk of Severe Thunderstorms and Flash Flooding Today Across South Central Texas…

SLIGHT

Area of Concern:

Slight risk for all of South Central Texas, with the greatest risk northeast of a Kerrville to New Braunfels to Cuero line including the Austin metro area.

Threats & Impacts:

Winds:  Damaging Winds up to 60 MPH. Could cause damage to powerlines, trees, and small structures.

Hail:  Up to Quarter to Half-Dollar Sized Hail (1.0-1.25″).

Rainfall:  Average rainfall of 0.25-0.5 inches, with isolated spots up to 1-2 inches. Flash flooding will be possible in areas that have received the greatest rainfall over the past 48 hours. 

Tornadoes:  Isolated, brief tornadoes are possible.

Timing and Overview:

Scattered strong to severe thunderstorms are possible this afternoon through mid-evening as the strong upper level low pressure system in the Rockies begins to move east. Short-term models are coming into better agreement that scattered thunderstorms will most likely develop in west Texas, the Hill Country, and high terrain of Mexico this afternoon before moving into the I-35 corridor and areas east during the late afternoon and evening hours. The greatest risk of severe thunderstorms will be northeast of a Kerrville to New Braunfels to Cuero line, but there is still an isolated threat southwest of this line into San Antonio and the Rio Grande Plains. The primary threats will be damaging wind and flash flooding, though an isolated brief tornado is possible. Flash flooding is still a threat in areas that have already received a few inches of rain due to saturated soils in those areas, but storms should be lower in coverage and move faster than yesterday. See attached images. 

Confidence:

  • Severe Chances: Moderate
  • Flash Flooding Chances: Low-Moderate
