BRYAN, Tex. (KBTX) - A line of storms set to develop across West Texas Friday night will slide eastward into Saturday morning. The potential is there that this line of storms could become strong to severe as they pass through the Brazos Valley.

The Storm Prediction Center has a line from Lee County up through northern San Jacinto County highlighted in an Enhanced Risk for severe weather, while points further to the south are included in a Slight Risk. If a strong to severe storm pops up, hazards include damaging 60 MPH or greater wind gusts, hail to the size of quarters or greater, as well as a couple tornadoes which could be strong. Heavy rain will also be possible with these storms.

There are still many factors that need to be monitored leading up to Saturday. Latest details as of Thursday evening are included in the video above.
