PERMIAN BASIN, Texas (Nexstar) – Parts of the Permian Basin will have a chance to see some severe weather this weekend.
On Friday, there is a 30 percent chance for some thunderstorms across the Basin. Specifically, the north parts of Andrews, Martin, and Howard Counties will be at a marginal risk for severe weather.
Chief Meteorologist Chase Menendez says storm chances will pick up around 8 p.m. and continue overnight.
Saturday shows a similar story but in different sections of the Permian Basin. There will be a 30 percent chance again Saturday and winds are expected to pick up as well.
Terrell, Reagan, Glasscock, and Howard Counties will also be under a marginal risk for severe weather on Saturday but by Sunday, skies should clear up.
However, even as storms move out of the area, it’s going to be a windy weekend. Gusts up to 40 miles per hour are expected Saturday and 50 miles per hour on Sunday.
