Isolated Storms Possible
Tuesday, May 26th, 2015
NEW DAMAGE SURVEYS
Tuesday the National Weather Service confirmed two tornadoes in our KEYE-TV viewing area. One was an EF-2 with peak winds of 125 mph west of Cameron in the town of Pettibone. One person was killed in that storm. The other was an EF-1 with peak winds of 105 mph in Cedar Creek. One person was critically injured in that storm. Other damage surveys are going to be conducted and we'll bring you what we learn when we get it.
MORE STORM CHANCES
It was nice to see the sunshine return and give us a chance to catch our breath. A system in North Texas may try to send some showers/isolated storms our way overnight, but my confidence isn't very high. Don't let your guard down because if storms manage to get here, they could be on the strong side. I'll keep isolated storms in your overnight forecast and again in your Wednesday and Thursday afternoon forecasts. Chances for storms increase to 30-40% Friday through Monday, then taper to just 10% by Tuesday. If we get any heavy rain, flooding is a risk due to our saturated soil.
TURN AROUND DON'T DROWN
The number of closures as of Tuesday evening was falling, but was still over 300! Check atxfloods.com for road closure updates. It may take some time for all the creeks, streams and rivers to go back in their banks.
Lake Travis topped 656 feet Tuesday and could reach 660 by Wednesday. It reached 65% full while Lake Buchanan is climbing toward 991 feet and is now 41% full. Combined storage has reached 55%!
