As Central Texans bundle up against another day of brisk chill, Mother Nature seems to be winding up to throw a curveball of stormy weather straight into their backyard. After a full week of temperatures stubbornly clinging below the seasonal norm, the region's serenity is forecast to be abruptly replaced by a tempest potent enough to spawn tornadoes, reported by KVUE.
Numerous showers and isolated storms are forecast Wed night into Thu. There is a Level 1 to 2 out of 5 risk for severe storms east of the I-35 and I-37 corridors on Thu. The main threat is the potential for a few, brief tornadoes. Monitor updates over the next couple of days. pic.twitter.com/VxfK87WXYs— NWS Austin/San Antonio (@NWSSanAntonio) November 28, 2023
The calm sky will soon be edged out by darkening clouds as the week progresses, with a Western Low slated to aggressively usher in downpours by Thursday. This weather pattern is expected to cause a significant drop in temperature, subsequently creating instability—and with it, the potential for severe thunderstorms. "An area of low pressure is expected to develop and move closer to the upper Texas Panhandle late Wednesday into Thursday," as stated in KVUE.
Amidst the returned glint of sunshine today, the narrative firmly remains one of anticipation and preparation. Residents have been advised to remain alert. The station promotes its free weather app as a tool to "warn you early and help you stay safe during storms," as per FOX 7 WAPP.
