A long stretch of tropical moisture from the Gulf and an upper level disturbance over the north-central part of Texas will lead to more thunderstorms this afternoon. 

This morning, I looked at a long list of primarily wind damage reports from San Jacinto and Polk Counties. According to early estimates, wind reaching at least 70mph knocked down numerous trees and power lines in the region. If you have any photos to share, please forward them to us and we will air them with your permission.

Today, the atmosphere will grow increasingly unstable as temperatures hit the low 90s. The highest likelyhood of severe weather will be north and east of the metro area. Thunderstorm probablity is from 40%-50%  beginning this afternoon through tonight.

Some thunderstorms will again produce high straight line winds and 1/2" hail. Please stay connected with KHOU.com for the latest severe weather advisories. KHOU-11 Doppler radar will be tracking the threat all day and we'll be posting weather crawls as needed.
