Williamson County residents hoping to catch a break after a slew of severe thunderstorms caused damage across the county last week may be out of luck, with the National Weather Service (NWS) forecasting anywhere from a 20 – 80% chance of thunderstorms every day this week through Sunday.
Issuing a hazardous weather outlook for Williamson County for Sunday, June 23 through Saturday, June 29, the NWS warns the storms could produce “damaging winds, hail, and heavy rain” throughout the week.
Monday will have the highest chance of thunderstorms at 80%, with winds projected to reach as high as 25 miles per hour. Tuesday through Thursday will see a 20% chance of showers and thunderstorms, with wind speeds projected to reach between 5 and 10 miles per hour.
Come Friday, the chance of showers and thunderstorms will increase to 30%, with that chance increasing to 40 and 50% on Saturday and Sunday, respectively.
Despite the rough weather predicted for the upcoming week, temperatures will remain between the high 60s and high 80s, increasing to the low 90s for Saturday and Sunday. Som if there’s one thing to remember to bring when leaving the house this week, an umbrella might just be it.
