Threat of severe weather on Christmas Day

December 23rd, 2012 at 9:43 am by under Weather

From the First Warning Weather Center, the Storm Prediction Center has placed much of central Texas in a threat of severe weather on Christmas morning.

A powerful cold front is expected to sweep northwest to southeast across central Texas on Christmas morning. As the very cold air mass behind the front interacts with the warm, humid environment ahead of it, we will be looking at a 50% chance of showers and thunderstorms Christmas morning.

As of Sunday morning, the Storm Prediction Center in Norman, Oklahoma labeled the yellow-shaded area above in a “slight risk” for severe weather Christmas morning as the front moves through.

At this time, the greatest risk for thunderstorms appears to be between 6am and noon on Christmas Day, just as many of us are waking up to open presents.
