Within the line (or immediately out ahead of it), discrete supercells or rotating storms embedded within the line could produce the potential of an isolated tornado or two. When all is said and done, this storm system will be rather wimpy compared to a couple soakers headed our way next week.
Rain and storms are gone by early Friday morning.
A higher threat for strong to severe storms will occur later in the afternoon as daytime heating destabilizes our atmosphere.
Overnight thunderstorms could contain hail, damaging wind gusts and torrential downpours, DeVore says.
The current timing should have storms approaching the area after 2 p.m. and continue into the early evening hours.
Storms will move from west to east over us thru this afternoon and for many the commute home.
The risk of violent storms Friday will extend from central Kansas and western Missouri to northeastern Texas and western Louisiana, according to AccuWeather.
Our First Alert Weather team is tracking a line of fast-moving storms across the South Plains on Thursday night into Friday morning. The parameters aren't super high for widespread severe weather or a concern for all modes of severe weather.

Despite the cloud cover and pending rain chances, temperatures will fight back into the lower/middle 70s today.
Rain chances will come to an end Friday night, with rain pushing into Northeast Oklahoma overnight.
TUESDAY & WEDNESDAY: A return to quiet, more stable conditions appears likely with high pressure nosing in from the north. Look for highs in the 70s.
