The same slow-moving system that brought several days of severe weather to the central U.S. this week touched off more thunderstorms today across the East, but for the remainder of tonight severe storms will mainly affect Texas.

Due to the threat for severe storms and isolated tornadoes, a Tornado Watch is still in effect for parts of Texas, including the city of Abilene. Farther south of this, a Severe Thunderstorm Watch is in effect for southwestern Texas and southeasertn New Mexico, including the cities of Midland, Marfa, and San Angelo, Texas, and Carlsbad, N.M.

Large hail will be the primary threat in this region, but damaging gusts in excess of 65 mph along with an isolated tornado will also be possible.
