Thursday thunderstorm outlook

All the attention shifts to the weekend after Thursday. A storm system will move east into Texas by late-Saturday. This will help pull-in an unstable airmass into the Brazos Valley, which will help support severe thunderstorms. There are many questions on the exact timing of this upper-level storm system, which will impact the timing of thunderstorms. At this time, it appears severe storms will be possible late-Saturday into early-Sunday. It is possible thunderstorm timing may need to be adjusted over time as the picture becomes clearer. It appears all modes of severe weather are possible.
