The main threat from these storms will be very strong winds and possibly large hail. Some tornadoes are also possible, especially if a few isolated storms can develop ahead of the main line.

A Flash Flood Watch is already in effect for North Texas.


Rainfall will be heavy with these storms but, thankfully, will be progressing through the area faster than the storms that arrived over this past weekend. However, any additional rainfall will aggravate the flooding situation in North Texas.
