Localized Severe Threat Continues in Southern Plains

The threat of severe weather will continue east of Wednesday's devastation in Granbury, Texas.

The upper-level low pressure that created the destructive tornadoes in northern Texas on Wednesday evening will move eastward through the day on Thursday.

While the exact storm complex that brought Wednesday's tornadoes began to decay late into the morning Thursday, the threat will ramp up again in far eastern Texas, southern Arkansas and the northern half of Louisiana.

Thunderstorms will likely be strongest and most numerous in the afternoon and evening, after daytime heating will be able to help storms develop.

With these storms, the main threat will be damaging wind gusts and hail. However, there still remains a threat of an isolated tornado.

The possibility for severe weather is not limited to the southern Plains Thursday. Another upper low in the central Plains could produce severe weather in the afternoon.
