Two rounds of strong/severe storms will impact North and Central Texas this afternoon and tonight. The higher threat for severe storms this afternoon and tonight will be along and west of the Interstate 35 corridor. Another round of strong/severe storms appears likely Wednesday afternoon and evening, mainly east of Interstate 35/35E. We are expecting three rounds of storms: this afternoon, overnight, and late Wednesday afternoon. The strongest storms are expected this afternoon, while most of the area will receive a squall line overnight.
A few storms may develop over North and Central Texas through the day, and some of these may become strong, even producing some small hail. Additional thunderstorms are expected to develop to our west this afternoon along the dryline, moving north and northeast. These storms are expected to move into our western counties late this afternoon and this evening. These storms will likely be severe producing very large hail (potentially baseball sized or larger), damaging winds, and and possibly a tornado or two. Isolated flash flooding may be possible if storms train over an area.
This first round of storms will likely move north of the region this evening while the second round of storms develops back to our west. This round of storms is expected to move west to east across the region as a squall line overnight. Damaging wind and hail will be possible along with an isolated tornado or two. Flash flooding may also occur in locations that were impacted with heavier rain earlier in the evening. The squall line will likely weaken in intensity as it moves east of the I-35 corridor, or possibly before then.
Isolated thunderstorms will be possible Wednesday afternoon, with hail being the main threat in the east. Please see the attached pdf for additional information concerning locations mentioned.
