Storm Update for North Texas and Who Might See a Freeze This Week!
Storms look likely late Tuesday evening into Wednesday morning for all of North Texas. Some of these storms will be severe. The timing for the DFW Metroplex looks to be between 1am and 6am early Wednesday morning.
MILD AND WINDY THRU TUESDAY
Gusty south winds today have gusted close to 40 mph today. Mild temperatures with highs today in the upper 70s and low 80s for some. Another windy day on tap for Tuesday.
Mild and breezy.
Mostly cloudy and windy. A few breaks in the clouds by the afternoon. A few light showers and sprinkles will be possible.
Storms will develop along the dryline in NW Texas Tuesday evening. This area looks to be just west of Wichita Falls and Graham. These storms will have a high potential of becoming severe with very large hail and a few tornadoes. What happens after the sun goes down, is these storms will come together into a line as a cold front catches up with the dryline. This will form a line of storms that will march eastward Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. I expect these storms to arrive between 1am and 6am in the DFW Metroplex. Large hail and damaging winds will be the main threat with these storms. The timing works in our favor though, as that time of day has the least amount of heating and instability. So the severity of these storms may not be too bad.
Everyone is under the slight risk for severe weather late Tuesday evening into Wednesday morning.
SEVERE RISK ASSESSMENT
Wednesday 7am – turning cold with lingering rain. Temps in 30s and 40s!
Wednesday 4pm – rain clears east and some late day sun. But cool and windy with temps in 50s.
FREEZE POSSIBLE THURSDAY MORNING
It will be cold Thursday morning with everyone falling into the 30s. Some areas along the Red River and to the north and west of Fort Worth may see a freeze early Thursday morning.
