UPDATED: Flooding biggest concern with storms this evening

Posted:

Here is current radar:


INTERACTIVE RADAR

8:01 p.m. - Severe warnings have been issued for storms north of Levelland and just north of the Lubbock Airport. These could each produce at least 1" hail, are moving NE. They are also producing very heavy rainfall.

 

 

7:36 p.m. - The most significant concern with storms remains flooding. That said, some hail is being reported out of the line of storms that stretches from 

 

5:35 p.m. - Significant flooding has been reported in Crosby, Dickens and Cottle counties, where the storms have trained over the past few hours. Some highways are blocked. 207 south of Ralls is impassable because of flooding. Also, there is a lot of water over US 62 west of Ralls. More highways in Motley and Cottle counties have water running over them.


5:19 p.m. - Severe warning for storms that stretch from west of Wolfforth to Shallowater, moving NE. Greater hail risk is with severe storm near Ralls.

 


4:35 p.m. - A new severe thunderstorm warning has been issued for the city of Lubbock and stretches down to near Ropesville. 1" hail and torrential rainfall is possible. Expect more flooding with this storm. Larger hail is expected with storms east of Lubbock, moving NE.

 

Some tree and utility line damage is reported in Roaring Springs. We watched that storm last hour that prompted a tornado warning. It's now moving across Cottle County.


3:14 p.m. - Flash flood warning continues for Lubbock because parts of the city have picked up 2" of rain. Much of the city it's at least an inch and it was over a short bit of time. Some vehicles have gotten stuck in the water in south Lubbock. Storms are moving from SW to NE at about 25mph. Any additional storms will just cause more flooding problems.

A tornado watch is in effect until 9 p.m. for Lubbock and most of the area, counties in blue below, for the potential for a few tornadoes. Our main concern with storms is large hail and flooding. But we can't rule out a few tornadoes. 


1:16 p.m. - It's another day of storms. A flood advisory goes until 2:30p for Lubbock because of a storm that produced torrential downpours. There's so much water in the atmosphere that it doesn't take much to drop a quick 1/2" to 1" of rain.

There's now a severe thunderstorm warning for Lubbock, SW Lubbock County, SE Hockley, NE Terry, NW Lynn counties. Potential for 1.25" hail and 60mph wind. It will also produce additional flooding.

More storms are expected across our area through the afternoon, primary concern being large hail.
