August 8th, Thursday Evening Forecast

- More rain, and more severe weather tonight. Hello folks and good Thursday afternoon. Thanks to a cold front, increased instability, and plenty of moisture, we'll have some severe thunderstorms through the overnight across the High Plains. A few storms will pop up across the southern Texas Panhandle through 8 or 9pm; these storms can produce large hail and strong straight line winds, as well as frequent lightning, and heavy downpours. Flash flooding will be a threat, especially across the northern Texas Panhandle and the Oklahoma Panhandle. Later on tonight, storms that formed near the mountains to the north west will be moving this way, with mainly a straight line wind threat. Though the chance for tornadoes is very low, it is possible to see a brief spin-up in the evening hours. Tonight's storms will move out before sunrise, as temperatures drop down to between 59 and 68 degrees, with mostly cloudy skies. The clouds will stay with us through the afternoon, and a few more showers will pop up as highs get to the mid 80s to low 90s. This weekend, we'll have a few shots at rain from thunderstorms in the afternoons, but the hot 90s come up everywhere across the area starting Monday and continue through the middle of next week.

Stay tuned to KAMR NBC 4 and KCIT Fox 14 for severe weather updates tonight.
