Severe thunderstorm watch issued until 2 p.m.

CENTRAL TEXAS (KXXV) -

Here's a look at the Thursday storm potential in Central Texas.

As of 9 a.m., there's a pretty extensive line of showers and storms just off to our west/northwest and is moving to the northeast. The trend this morning was that when storms approached I-3, .they weakened and dissipated. Will the storms stay together over the next couple of hours? That's the big question. If they can stay together, areas along I-35 could see hail and gusty winds.

These storms are moving east/northeast at about 40 mph. So if they do stay together, they will be impacting Waco, Temple, Killeen over the next couple of hours.

The National Weather Service has issued a Severe Thunderstorm Watch for parts of Central Texas, mainly along and west of I-35 through at least 2 p.m. If storms fall apart, that will likely be dropped earlier than 2 p.m.

Our latest high-res model runs show the storms staying together and arriving in Waco a little after lunch. We wouldn't be surprised if these storms speed up, and it arrives before then. These storms are moving very quickly.

Most of the storm activity should be dissipated and out of the Central Texas area before the sun goes down. If these storms stay together, that will help to eat up a lot of energy for this afternoon. Therefore, our severe weather threat will diminish quickly.

More widespread showers and storms are expected on Friday, with a lower end severe weather threat out ahead of a cold front.
