Hazardous Weather Outlook Wednesday

North and Central Texas

A Tornado Watch is in effect until noon across portions of northeast Texas. Conditions favorable for severe weather include a few tornadoes, damaging wind gusts up to 70 mph, and hail up to 2.5 inches. Pay close attention to the weather and have a plan if they issue a warning in your area!

Strong to severe storms are expected to rapidly develop during the pre-dawn hours this morning just west of the I-35 corridor as a cold front overtakes the dryline and an upper trough arrives from the west. Storms will then move progressively east through the remainder of the morning hours. The best potential for severe storms will be east of Highway I-35 and north of I-20, with a lower threat further south and west. All modes of severe weather will be possible, though damaging winds to 70 mph and large hail could be the primary hazards. Pay close attention to the weather early this morning, and have multiple ways to receive warnings before heading outdoors to commute to work or school!

After the midweek cold front, multiple showers and storms will be possible through Friday night. It will be confined mainly across our southern counties. Across Central Texas, you can expect to see 2-3″ of total rainfall, though our far southern Central Texas counties may see upwards of 2″, with isolated higher amounts up to 5″ possible. Locally heavy rain may cause isolated flooding. Remember to check back for new forecast updates, and never drive through flooded roads!

Expect partly to mostly cloudy, cool, and breezy conditions Thursday. Overrunning moisture and lift across Central and East Texas will result in occasional showers and possibly a few rumbles of thunder across the Lower Brazos Valley. Do not expect rain to be heavy. East-northeast winds of 10 to 15 mph and occasionally gusty are expected as highs struggle into the 50s south and 60s north.

The best rain and storm chances on Friday will be across Central Texas but may develop as far north as the Red River. Precipitation should end by Saturday morning, with low rain chances remaining across East Texas. Friday will be cool with highs in the upper 50s and low 60s, with temperatures gradually warming into the mid-70s and low 80s by Easter Sunday.

Today and Tonight
Thunderstorms will be possible ahead of a cold front this morning. Some storms may become severe with large hail, damaging winds, and a few tornadoes.

Elevated fire weather concerns are expected west of I-35 this afternoon.

Thursday through Tuesday
Isolated thunderstorms will be possible along and south of I-20 from Thursday through Friday. Areas across the southeast will have the potential to see locally heavy rain and flooding.

Be aware of the weather in case the NWS activates spotters.

South Central and Southwest Arkansas, North Central and Northwest Louisiana, Southeast Oklahoma, and East and Northeast Texas










Another round of severe weather will be on the table tonight. Numerous severe storms, with all possible hazards, will move across portions of Northeast Texas, Southeast Oklahoma, and Western Arkansas early Wednesday morning.

Today and tonight

Expect another round of strong to severe thunderstorms today as the subsequent cold front advances into the region. The severe threat appears to be highest along and south of the I-30 corridor. This will occur as the cold front slows its eastward progression and heating increases ahead of the cold front, further enhancing the threat this today before gradually diminishing through the evening hours.

Thursday through Tuesday

The pattern looks to remain unsettled through the end of the week as rounds of heavy rainfall will become more likely as the front stalls south of the region. It could reintroduce flooding concerns across the region through the end of the week as several inches of rainfall will be possible, mainly from Deep East Texas into North and Central
Louisiana. However, the rain will gradually end by this Easter weekend as the stalled boundary finally exits to the southeast.

Expect spotter activation through this afternoon.
