Thunderstorms expected Friday through the weekend - KCBD NewsChannel 11 Lubbock

Thunderstorms expected Friday through the weekend

Posted: Updated:

Friday: Thunderstorms should hold off until after mid-afternoon, then isolated storms are likely. Friday morning's data paints an environment favorable for supercells capable of large hail and isolated damaging wind gusts. While conditions are not favorable for tornadoes, the possibility should not be ignored. Activity should slowly shift eastward and wind down over night.

Saturday: Any thunderstorm activity likely would be isolated, but any storm that does develop may produce large hail and damaging wind gusts.

Sunday: Sunday holds the greatest potential for severe weather. Storm coverage should be isolated in the afternoon, with an increase in activity and strength in the evening. As storms develop, the environment will become more favorable for severe storms, moving west to east. Data this morning is supportive of very large hail and damaging wind gusts as likely severe type. The same caveat about tornadoes noted in the Day 1 discussion applies.

For the latest information, severe outlooks and forecast, watch NewsChannel 11 at Noon, 4, 5, 6 and 10.
