The weather pattern is about to go into a typical wet April mode just in time for the beginning of the holiday weekend. There will be enough shear in the upper level wind flow and a decent jet stream in the region to produce a slight chance for severe weather Friday evening. The outline for the severe weather threat includes the Northwestern portion of our viewing area. It starts to the West of a line from Brenham to Lufkin.
A few tornadoes and hail bearing storms are possible for our viewing area Friday evening until Saturday morning depending on the speed of the front.
April comes in with above normal temperature readings in the low 80s with plenty of wind and humidity to set up the atmosphere for the fireworks on Good Friday. Overnight lows area expected to be near 60 with brief morning clouds and patchy fog until late morning Thursday. A few storms may also show up on Easter Sunday if the front hangs up along the coast. Have a great holiday and stay with channel 11 for severe weather coverage.
