A larger area of rain and thunderstorms have been affecting North Texas this morning.  This has created a boundary called an “outflow boundary” across the southeastern counties in North Texas.  It will be near this boundary where more thunderstorms will develop later this afternoon.

A true cold front is still north of us into Oklahoma, and as this front moves south during the day, we expect new, strong thunderstorms to develop on that front as well.

One of our computer models is showing what is likely to happen.

4pm:  New storms fire up near Metroplex.

7pm:  Storms quickly move south, increasing in strength due to outflow boundary.

2014 06 12 1005 001 Rest of the Day


10pm:  Storms are out of the area

2014 06 12 1005 002 Rest of the Day


Overall, North Texas is under a SLIGHT RISK for severe storms today.  The greatest potential for very large hail (baseballs) and possible tornadoes will be in our southeastern areas, closest to our outflow boundary.
