Severe Storms Ahead for Montgomery County
Status Update from the Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Management
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
April 28, 2020
A fast moving line of strong to severe thunderstorms will be moving through the Montgomery County area late Tuesday night. The line of thunderstorms may weaken as it moves across the area, so the higher chance of severe thunderstorms will be north of I-10. The main threat from the severe thunderstorms will be damaging winds (wind gusts greater than 58 MPH) and lightning. A smaller probability of large hail and isolated tornadoes does exist. Locally heavy rainfall will also be possible with these storms, but the threat of flash flooding is low due to the fast movement of these storms. The severe thunderstorm threat will be over a few hours after sunrise.
