April 22, Tuesday Morning Forecast

Good Tuesday morning folks.
Happy Tuesday, folks! It'll be another warm day across the area and even a little humid, too.

For today, winds from the southeast will pump in the moisture we need for a few very isolated showers and storms in some of our western counties. Places like Boise City, Clayton, Dalhart and Tucumcari have the best shot for seeing a few raindrops. The winds will also add a little moisture to the air for the rest of us. Afternoon highs will be back around 80 degrees. Here in Amarillo we'll hit 81.

Tomorrow, things get interesting. In the morning we might see a few rumbles of thunder and some drizzle slide across the area. Then, into the afternoon, we'll be tracking the dryline a cold front, warmer temperatures and a few thunderstorms - some that could be severe. Winds will be from the south with a southwesterly kick on the west side of the dryline and a southeasterly kick on the east side of the dryline. Temperatures will push into the 80s again. Here in Amarillo we'll hit 85.

As it looks right now the dryline will set up jest east of Amarillo on a line from Guymon to Groom to Silverton. Storms will initiate around 3pm or 4pm. If storms develop they will have the chance to turn severe. The main threats will be damaging winds and large hail. The tornado threat isn't very high, but it is also not zero. Keep in mind the tornado threat on Easter was quite low and there was still a small rope tornado that developed near Childress.

Please keep an eye to the sky and check back for details!
