South Texas is preparing for potential flash floods during the upcoming Mother’s Day weekend, as reported by early morning meteorologist Gerard Jebaily.
The threat of flash flooding extends across Texas and the Plains region, with severe thunderstorms expected throughout the central United States.
Areas from Sioux Falls to Omaha and Kansas City, down to the central plains of Oklahoma and Texas border, are at risk, indicated by the Level 3 out of 5 orange zone on the severe weather scale.
This includes the possibility of large hail, damaging winds, and even a few tornadoes.
Of particular concern is the flash flooding threat near the border, specifically in Del Rio and San Antonio.
Flash floods can occur suddenly and pose a significant danger to motorists, making it crucial to exercise caution and avoid driving through flooded roadways.
South Texas, including San Antonio and Brownsville, could experience two days of potential flooding.
On a brighter note, Jebaily emphasized the importance of Mother’s Day weekend and highlighted the East Coast as a favorable location for outdoor plans.
Expect sunshine and warm temperatures ranging from 70 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit in this region.
However, across the central United States, including Chicago, Sunday might be a bit messy and cool, potentially leading to an indoor brunch day.
Spotty afternoon storms may be present, but they shouldn’t completely hinder plans to spend quality time with mothers.
In conclusion, South Texas faces the imminent threat of flash floods during the Mother’s Day weekend, while the East Coast offers a more promising weather outlook for outdoor activities.
