Severe storms possible on Wednesday

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

There is a slight risk of severe thunderstorms in the KCBD viewing area Wednesday afternoon and evening.

Late morning data points to a slight chance of isolated thunderstorms over roughly the eastern half of the KCBD viewing area Wednesday afternoon, with a slight chance of thunderstorms over approximately the eastern one-third - generally near and east of the Caprock - late Wednesday afternoon and evening.

The current Thunderstorm Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center (SPC) shows a possibility of thunderstorms in green, and an area at slight risk of severe thunderstorms in yellow. The storms may begin mid-afternoon near the western edge of the outlook area and then transition eastward into the evening. The greatest risk, which is still slight, will be over the northeastern KCBD viewing area, with the main threats damaging hail and wind. There will be a low potential for an isolated tornado or two.

The chance of rain also is greatest over the northeastern corner of the viewing area, with little chance of measurable rainfall west of the Caprock. Otherwise this afternoon skies will clear from the west and it will be windy, with areas of blowing dust. By late afternoon the Lubbock vicinity and points west are likely to be mostly sunny, warm, windy, and dusty, with the threat of severe storms to the east.
