Good morning. Rain chances will be increase in the next 24 to 48 hours across much of north and central Texas. The upper level system responsible for this week’s weather is moving down the front range of the Rocky Mountains, and will produce a complex of thunderstorms in the high plains tonight. This complex of storms will begin to affect our area early Thursday. By Friday afternoon, the system will move away from us. A short PDF has been included to depict rainfall amounts, areas of impact, and confidence levels.
BOTTOM LINE: Emergency Managers, elected officials, transportation/public works departments, and other public safety officials should be <prepared> for the potential for flooding and flash flooding rains beginning early Thursday and lingering through Friday morning. Widespread severe weather is not anticipated at this point, but there will be areas and jurisdictions that must deal with localized severe weather, most likely Thursday morning and again Thursday evening. A Flash Flood Watch will be in effect Thursday and Friday, but continue to closely monitor the forecast for the potential for additional watches, warnings, and advisories.
