Rain has begun falling across a majority of Texoma. As we move deeper into the afternoon, the rain showers likely will strengthen and become thunderstorms.
According to Chief Meteorologist Michael Bohling, the chance for severe weather increases after 3 p.m. and peaks at 5 p.m. in Wichita Falls. Rain chances will remain high through the afternoon and evening.
Bohling said storms that do end up becoming severe could produce strong wind gusts and large to very large hail (up to baseball size.
Bohling said the tornado threat is low, but not zero.
In the southeastern counties of Texoma, including Jack and Montague Counties, the threat of potentially damaging winds and strong storms is greater. The tornado threat is higher in these areas, but should still be considered as low.
