GREENVILLE — The National Weather Service forecast is calling for a 50 percent chance of showers and/or thunderstorms tonight, with a 40 percent chance of storms before 1 p.m. Wednesday.
We could use the rain, as Hunt County as of Tuesday morning was listed as the third driest county in Texas, according to the Keetch-Byram Drought Severity Index.
This is the hazardous weather outlook issued by the Weather Service:
A stationary front just south of I-20 will slowly move northward today to just south of the Red River. Meanwhile, an upper air disturbance will arrive by tonight and pass by the area to the northeast through Wednesday. A few strong to severe storms are possible by late afternoon near the front, then will become more numerous along and near the front across northern parts of north Texas tonight into Wednesday morning, as lift from the upper level disturbance increases across this area. Main hazards from storms through this evening will be damaging downburst winds once again and frequent lightning. Hail may occur with more intense thunderstorms. Locally heavy rainfall in excess of 1 inch will be possible overnight with any training activity across the north.
