Areas well west of Fort Worth will have the chance for strong to severe storms Wednesday evening. Storms will develop along the dry line in West Texas and then move east. Storms will lose some of their punch once the sun goes down, but a few storms could make it to western sections of North Texas like Jack, Palo Pinto, Montague Counties.
Storms will be increasing in coverage late Thursday afternoon into the evening across all of North Texas. We are in the slight risk for severe weather on Thursday into Thursday night. The greatest threats will be quarter size hail and gusty winds. At this point, it does not look like a tornado threat as the wind field in the atmosphere does not look conducive for low-level rotation. But we will have to continue to assess the situation as Thursday gets closer.
