12:40 p.m. Update
The National Weather Service has now issued a Severe Thunderstorm Warning until 1pm for the northern valley and includes Rio Grande City, Edinburg, Raymondville, and Port Mansfield. Please take precaution and stay indoors as strong winds, heavy rainfall, and hail is associated with this storm.
We received many photos and videos at firstname.lastname@example.org from the hail and storms that came through the Valley on Friday.
Once again there is a Severe Thunderstorm watch that is in effect for the entire Valley. This one will last until 2 pm Sunday afternoon.
The time that we are tracking the threat will be between 10 am. and 5 p.m. The strongest of that will be until 2 pm for severe weather, but strong storms after that time may linger. As more information comes in those times may be adjusted.
We have a very similar set of ingredients to see the same type of storms develop like we saw on Friday afternoon.
This includes the repeated threat of large hail, the increased threat of damaging winds, and a new threat for flooding. The risk for a quick spin up tornado cannot be 100 percent ruled out either.
The Storm Prediction Center has placed the Rio Grande Valley and points north under a slight risk for severe weather for Sunday. This slight risk also covers more points further north than before, so travel around the state may be impacted.
The current forecast also shows that more areas in the lower Valley are likely to be impacted by this round of storms and they are also expected to see the highest amounts of rainfall Sunday.
This is a fluid situation. The Valley Storm Team will work around the clock to keep you informed as changes to the forecast occur.
