We are monitoring the chances for storms, some possibly severe, across north Texas late this afternoon through tonight. The first chance for storms will be late this afternoon as a dryline moves eastward into the area. Storms are not guaranteed to develop along the dryline, but if they do, they will likely be severe, with large hail being the primary threat. If storms do form, it will likely be after 4:00pm and the areas impacted will be west of Interstate 35. The greatest risk for severe storms will be located west of Interstate 35 and north of Interstate 20. A second chance for showers and storms will occur later tonight across all of north Texas as a cold front moves through the area, primarily after 9:00pm, but this activity will have a lower threat for severe weather.
There is a chance of severe thunderstorms, especially west of Interstate 35/35W after 4:00pm today. Additional rain showers and thunderstorms (likely sub-severe) are likely along a cold front that will push through north and central Texas late tonight through Thursday morning. There is not a significant threat of intense or widespread severe weather - particularly from the standpoint of tornadoes. However, this will serve as the first appreciable severe weather threat for most locations in North Texas. As such, it should serve as a good test for everyone's preparedness and response processes. All EMs, media partners, public safety officials, and spotters should monitor the weather closely, and be prepared for the potential for watches and warnings.
