Hail, frequent lightning also expected
By Guy Chapman – Navarro County Gazette
The Navarro County Office of Emergency Management has posted a series of updates about a heavy thunderstorm coming through the North and Central Texas area. As of 10:55 a.m., a strong thunderstorm is currently moving through the central portions of Navarro County, moving southeast at 35 mph. Half inch hail and wind gusts up to 50 mph will be possible with this storm. Heavy rainfall, frequent lightning, and wind damage, are also possible.
The threat of flash flooding across parts of North and Central Texas will continue as heavy rainfall is ongoing. There is also a threat for strong to severe damaging wind gusts across parts of North and Central Texas through the afternoon. A Flash Flood Watch will be in effect through 7 p.m. today for the areas expected to receive the heaviest rainfall.
A Mesoscale Convective System, a collection of thunderstorms that act as a system, will provide a probable risk for severe gusts and wind damage near and south of the I-20 through mid-afternoon as the storms move east-southeast towards the Sabine River.
The expected rejuvenation of storm intensity with an associated severe threat will seemingly coincide with surface temperatures warming into the low-mid 80s. This warming will create a probable severe thunderstorm watch likely within the 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. range, depending on radar trends.
