New: Issue Tornado Watch
Tornado Watch was issued throughout the metropolitan area and most of North Texas. One or two isolated tornadoes cannot be ruled out, but very large hail is the main risk in most thunderstorms.
A quick fact:
- More storms expected Thursday afternoon and evening. Some tough.
- Storms with very large hail and damaging winds are the biggest concern
- Triple-digit heat expected for late weekend
here we go again. Wednesday marked the fifth day of reports of severe hail across northern Texas, and the disruption is expected to return on Thursday.
Mostly north texas (including DFW) Increased risk due to severe weather (Level 3). Areas along the Red River are at moderate risk (Level 4) and extend to Oklahoma.
After a day of intense heating and very high humidity, more thunderstorms are expected in the afternoon and evening as the perimeter around the area is lifted slightly. Storms, as in the last few days, will likely bring very large hail and damage to the winds.
Another boundary we are looking at is the dry line to the west. This helps soften afternoon thunderstorms. North Texas storms will occur between 4:00 PM and 9:00 PM.
