Severe and Winter WX Threat Decreasing for the Region


Current tornado watch for southeast Texas expires at 9pm. SPC is monitoring an area immediately east of this watch for another watch. However, there has been very little severe activity at this point and further activity isn’t likely. It appears the cap is holding a head of the main activity and may stay that way, limiting storm development; until the main line gets there. An isolated storm or two can’t be ruled out, but it appears this one didn’t go as planned. The area of thunderstorms moving through Houston should have mainly a wind and small hail threat.

In Oklahoma the winter weather threat has greatly decreased with only 1-3 inches of snow expected in northwest Oklahoma overnight. In east-central and southeast sections a flash flood watch continues overnight along with a few flash flood warnings.
