After a cold, wet and windy Wednesday, severe storms will greet us early Thursday morning. This line of storms will arrive in the DFW Metro area between about 6am and 10am. Earlier to the west and later to the east.
A strong upper level low sitting over Arizona will swing into the southern Plains tonight and then move toward the Great Lakes on Thursday. This will force a Pacific cold front into the area early Thursday morning. Along that front is where the greatest threat of severe weather will be located. With temperatures so cold, large hail will be the main threat. Gusty winds will also accompany some of the storms too.
Cloudy skies and spotty drizzle and light rain will continue this evening with temperatures staying in the 40s.
Rain coverage will increase after midnight with scattered showers and thunderstorms over the area. A few of these storms could be strong with some hail. After midnight, a line of storms will develop out near Abilene and Wichita Falls. This is the line that will arrive toward daybreak in DFW. And this line will also have the greatest probability of producing severe weather.
THURSDAY 6am – 10am
The line of thunderstorms will be passing thru the DFW metro area. Large hail will be possible with this line along with winds 50 to 60 mph.
Mostly sunny skies and gusty winds out of the southwest will boast temperatures into the mid to upper 60s.
Here is a look at the expected location of the line of storms. Keep in mind there will probably be scattered showers and even thunderstorm ahead of this line.
