ODESSA, Texas (KOSA) - CBS7 FIRST ALERT Forecast for Tuesday, October 3rd, 2023: Severe thunderstorms will be possible this afternoon and evening.

Scattered strong to severe thunderstorms will be possible, especially in the eastern portions of our viewing area. The main threats are strong winds, large hail, and flash flooding, but a tornado or two can’t be ruled out.

The good news is that cooler temperatures and rain chances continue through the week. An upper-level trough will help bring a cold front Wednesday night, allowing us to cool to the 70s for the rest of this week. To recap, the highest chances for rain continue through Wednesday with rain chances continuing through next Saturday. Strong to severe storms are possible on today as with the threat extending for the majority of the region. A cold front will also move through the region Wednesday, helping to up the rain chances and cool temperatures even more...down into the 70s! Through the extended, we’ll see the chance for even some highs in the LOW-70s...there is definitely a dose of fall ahead this week.
