WEATHER ALERT DAY-FRIDAY
PROJECTIONS+TIMING (Still some uncertainty).
The Storm Prediction Center has maintained a day 2 "Slight Risk" for portions of Central Texas on Friday. Strong to severe thunderstorms will be possible around midday-through early afternoon. The latest model data and projections show weak morning storms initiating the afternoon rounds of severe weather around midday. For Central Texas, this could occur between 11-1 on Friday, and may happen right over or near the 35 corridor, however-they will move to the east quickly and intensify. If there is a greatest area for strong to severe storms Friday in Central Texas, it will likely fall in eastern Williamson and Milam counties, but I don't want to be too specific, ahead of time. These things can change. All in all, thunderstorms will be likely Friday, but should be out of here by dinner time, and the window of opportunity for strong or severe storms remains small-around 11am to 2 or 3pm in the early afternoon. Northeast Texas looks like the hotspot for any tornadic activity, come Friday afternoon.
New Wind Advisories for Mason, Llano, Gillespie, Burnet, Wilco, Milam for gusts 35-45mph today. Other spots: gusts up to 30mph.
HOUR-BY-HOUR + SHORT-TERM FORECAST:
Clouds to sun, followed by mostly sunny skies late. Winds out of the S 5-10mph. Highs in the mid 80's.
