HARLINGEN, Texas (ValleyCentral) — We are tracking the threat for storms to move into the Valley tonight and into the early morning. A severe thunderstorm warning has been issued in Hidalgo, Willacy and parts of Cameron County.
A severe thunderstorm watch is in effect for the Upper Valley until 1:00 am Sunday morning. This means conditions are favorable for the development of severe storms.
The lower Valley still remains in a marginal risk for severe weather. Since no one is ruled out completely from any storms everyone should stay weather aware tonight.
The Storm Prediction Center has the entire area under a slight risk for severe weather. This means the Valley has the possibility of seeing some organized severe thunderstorms.
Where severe weather does not occur, strong thunderstorms may still pass by during the same timeframe.
The primary threat includes strong damaging winds. Large hail of at least one inch in diameter is also possible.
