Severe storms will be possible on Thursday for North Texas.  The map below shows the areas of concern.  All the ares shaded in yellow have the chance of severe weather tomorrow.  The area in orange has a slightly higher chance.  Large hail up to baseballs, winds to 70 mph and isolated tornadoes will be possible.

Severe Risk1

The severe weather threat will be with us tomorrow afternoon roughly from 2pm to 8pm. Large hail, high winds, and isolated tornadoes are possible. Not everyone will see severe weather tomorrow afternoon, but the potential is there for some nasty storms. A lot of the severe potential tomorrow afternoon will depend on the amount of cloud cover and rain we have tomorrow morning. If we have storms thru the morning, the afternoon will not see severe weather. But if there is not much rain in the morning, the atmosphere will be primed for big storms.

Storms this evening are developing out in West Texas.  These storms will have the potential to reach western areas of North Texas later tonight.  This will be weakening as they approach our area.  Below you can see the radar from 430pm, it shows the Severe Thunderstorm Watch in yellow for West Texas.


Here’s a break down of storm chances for us in DFW.



Storms will move into western sections of North Texas late this evening. A few could be strong producing some hail and gusty winds. Scattered showers and storms could reach the metroplex between 5am and 9am Thursday morning. This would likely not be severe.
