Thunderstorms Moving Across Parts Of North Texas

By Larry Mowry, CBS 11 Chief Meteorologist

NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) – A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is in effect for all of North Texas until 8 p.m. Scattered storms will be moving across the metroplex through the evening. Storms should be ending by 8 p.m. across Dallas.

Severe weather has been reported, with hail the main concern. As the storms move east of Dallas there will be a slight tornado threat increase. But mostly hail and damaging winds remain the primary concern.

Storms will likely linger in eastern sections of North Texas overnight and into early Saturday morning. They will be well east of Dallas so it will be dry in the metroplex overnight. Temperatures will remain warm with lows in the upper 60s.

Initially there were indications that there was another storm chance on Saturday, but the models have backed off on rain chances. Instead, we will likely just see hot and muggy conditions with temperatures around 90 degrees and dewpoints in the 60s. There still could be a few isolated showers and thunderstorms, but they will mainly be east of Dallas.

On Sunday expect another hot and muggy day with temperatures in the upper 80s and low 90s. The dryline will set up west of North Texas and be the focal point of storms. A complex of storms will likely merge and head toward North Texas after sunset on Sunday. It’s tough to tell exactly where the storm complex will track but there is the chance it will impact the metroplex.

Next week expect Monday and Tuesday to be hot and muggy. There will be isolated storm chances mainly to the west on each afternoon, along the dryline. Highs will be around 90 degrees.
