Please see below for today’s National Weather Service forecast. We expect a total of 1.5” of rain with a low probability of flooding. Our greatest threat will be in the form of high wind conditions.

Expect the severe weather to arrive this afternoon at or near 2 to 3 p.m. and lasting into later this evening.

Bottom Line

Multiple rounds of showers and storms are expected today into tonight across North and Central Texas. A
few severe storms will be possible during this time with damaging winds being the main threat, mainly
along and east of the I-35 corridor.


● A line of showers and storms is expected this morning, ahead of an incoming cold front. Main
concerns are isolated damaging wind gusts and lightning. Brief spin-up tornadoes cannot be ruled
● As the line progresses eastward this afternoon, the threat for strong to severe storms will
increase for areas along and east of the I-35 corridor. The main threats are damaging wind gusts,
but small hail cannot be ruled out. The tornado threat is low, but non-zero.
● Widespread flooding is not expected at this time as storms will likely move quickly.
○ However, any training storms that develop would yield localized flooding concerns. This
threat is most likely to occur over the east and northeast portions of the region.
● Rainfall amounts between 1-2 inches are expected for most areas, with isolated higher amounts
up to 3 inches possible.
● Additional showers and storms may develop late this evening and tonight, before tapering off
from west to east.
