Storms Eye Rockies Front Range, N. Texas
UPDATED 8:15 PM CDT, July 26, 2013
UPDATED By WeatherBug Meteorologist, Chad Merrill
While large stretches of the U.S. enjoy a quiet end to the workweek, a few severe storms will still roll across the Rockies Front Range and Texas`s Red River Valley this evening. Damaging hail and high winds will be the biggest problem with these storms.
Due to this threat, a Severe Thunderstorm Watch is in effect for the Arklatex region, including the cities of Longview, Texas, Texarkana, Ark., and Shreveport, La., with a separate Severe Thunderstorm Watch from southeastern Wyoming into western Nebraska, far northwest Kansas and northeastern Colorado. Cheyenne, Wyo., and Scottsbluff and Sidney, Neb., are included.
Fortunately, these storms should not last for the entire overnight. As the nighttime hours wear on, the threat for severe storms will gradually wane as the atmosphere stabilizes due to the loss of daytime heating.
