Here is a comprehensive look at the threat of storms for this weekend.  Saturday night into the midday hours on Sunday is the timeframe where storms could impact the immediate DFW area.

WHAT TO EXPECT

 

SATURDAY:

During the day will be dry and windy.  No storms in the DFW area or in North Texas Saturday during the day.

SATURDAY EVENING:

Storms will be possible in far western and northwestern parts of North Texas.  These could be quite severe with very large hail and a tornado threat.  See map below.

SATURDAY NIGHT:

Storms that form west of DFW Saturday evening will move into the area overnight Saturday.  These storms will lose a little of their punch, but large hail will be possible during the overnight hours Saturday into early Sunday morning.  See map below.

SUNDAY MORNING:

There will likely be a few scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms lingering in the morning on Sunday.  A few could be strong to marginally severe producing gusty winds and hail.  See map below.

SUNDAY 11am to 5pm:

This is the timeframe where the DFW area could see the most intense storms.  A dry line will be making it to either the I-35 corridor, or it will be east of Dallas.  If the dry line is east of Dallas, we will not see any storms during the midday on Sunday and the whole afternoon will be dry and hot.

If the dry line stops along the I-35 corridor, storms would develop right over top of DFW and become severe.  Large hail, high wind, and tornadoes would be possible.  These storms would move east as we go into the evening.  See map below.

BOTTOM LINE FOR DFW METROPLEX:

Storm chances arrive Saturday Night with a hail threat.  Sunday during the midday is when the most intense storms will be possible.  But that will all depend on the location of the dryline.  Stay up to date with threat of storms this weekend with us here at CBS 11 News.
