A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH has been issued for Austin, Brazos, Burleson, Grimes, Houston, Lee, Madison, Montgomery, San Jacinto, Trinity, Walker, Waller, and Washington Counties until 8pm. Severe thunderstorms are possible with large hail and strong, damaging winds being the main concern. A brief, isolated tornado threat cannot be ruled out, as well.
The next local National Weather Service Skywarn Training will be held Tuesday, February 12 at 6:00pm at the Walker County Storm Shelter.
Anyone is welcome to attend, even if you just want to learn more about the weather. If you are looking to become a certified storm spotter, this would be a great opportunity as well.
