Severe Thunderstorm Watch #0617

Locations Affected

  • Northeast New Mexico
  • Oklahoma Panhandle
  • Texas Panhandle
  • Severe Thunderstorm Watch Summary

    Isolated storms moving into far northeast New Mexico and the Oklahoma Panhandle should further intensify while other storms develop through the evening. Large hail should be the primary risk, but a tornado cannot be ruled out, particularly during the early/mid-evening hours as a low-level jet increases across the region. Damaging wind potential could also increase if an organized cluster evolves as storms progress southeastward.

    Severe Weather Threats

  • Scattered large hail and isolated very large hail events to 2 inches in diameter possible
  • Scattered damaging wind gusts to 70 mph possible
  • A tornado or two possible

    Tornado Watch #0616

    Locations Affected

  • Far eastern Colorado
  • Western and central Kansas
  • Southwest Nebraska
  • Tornado Watch Summary

    Severe thunderstorms are expected to develop and increase initially across southwest Nebraska, northwest Kansas, and also southwest Kansas through early evening. Supercells capable of very large hail can be expected. The possibility of a couple of tornadoes will also increase through the early/mid-evening hours, particularly across a broad part of western toward north-central Kansas. Damaging winds will also be an increasing concern later this evening as an organized thunderstorm cluster likely evolves and spreads southeastward across northwest/central Kansas.

    Severe Weather Threats

  • A couple tornadoes possible
  • Scattered large hail and isolated very large hail events to 2.5 inches in diameter likely
  • Scattered damaging winds likely with isolated significant gusts to 75 mph possible
