Tonight the Concho Valley is watching severe storm potential throughout the region.

There is a “Marginal” to “Enhanced” risk for the region.

The main hazards we are watching include:

 – Hail: half dollar to golf ball in size

 – Damaging winds: 60-70 mph

 – Tornado threat: LOW but not zero

 – Heavy rainfall: With already saturated soils from over 3″ of rain seen this month, flooding will be a risk. 

When you are driving, especially at night, it is harder to recognize the dangers of flooding. Be cautious on roadways and remember, “turn around, don’t drown!”

The timing for the bulk of activity moving through the region will be through the overnight hours. Expect showers to move to the east going into the morning hours on Saturday. We are still seeing shower and thunderstorm chances continuing throughout the late morning hours on Saturday.
