Now That It’s Warmed Up, Amarillo Might Be Getting Weekend Storms
After spending a few cloudy and cool days wishing it would warm up and feel more like "May weather," we finally get sunshine and warmer temperatures. Soak it up while you can, because it looks like we may be getting thunderstorms.
The National Weather Service in Amarillo put out several updates today breaking down what we can possibly expect starting this afternoon (5/14) and going through the weekend.
While I'm glad there isn't much of a threat for tornadoes, I was hoping to get out and enjoy the sunshine.
It looks like the biggest threats are going to be hail and damaging winds. So batten down the trampolines, and park the car in the garage. There's potential for things to get nasty.
As the morning went on, similar updates were shared about tomorrow (5/15) and Sunday (5/16). Then, there was an update saying that our chances might even go into next week.
That would be just our luck. We get through the cool and cloudy days just so it can turn warm and stormy.
I know I'm not alone in saying that I was looking forward to the sunshine this weekend. Plus, we've got the Sod Poodles coming back to town early next week. Here's to hoping that the chances for rain and thunderstorms makes its way out of the area before then.
If anything really gives me hope for a nice quiet, beautiful weekend it's that we live in the Texas panhandle. Forecasts can change on a dime, or so it seems.
As the saying goes, if you don't like the weather just wait ten minutes.
