Thunderstorms Today Followed With Freeze

North and Central Texas


A storm system is expected to move through the Southern Plains today and will bring a threat of severe weather to North & Central Texas. Showers and thunderstorms will begin developing east of I-35 early in the day. A few storms in areas east of I-35 may intensify in the afternoon and become severe. In addition, a severe storm threat will exist along a cold front and dryline as it moves into North Texas from the west and northwest. Storms will continue to develop as it sweeps across the region through the evening hours. The threat of severe weather will diminish as the front passes each location. The main severe weather hazard will be large hail, but damaging winds and possibly a tornado or two will be possible.


The cold front will enter the northwest counties late this afternoon and make its way through the region during the evening and night hours. Severe storms will be possible along and ahead of the front. The main concern for any severe storms will be large hail, with a lesser damaging wind threat. A tornado or two may also be possible. Behind the front, expect sub-severe thunderstorms to linger into Friday morning.


Expect gusty conditions to continue through Friday afternoon. You should secure lightweight outdoor objects, so they do not blow away! Expect sustained winds between 15-25 mph, though speeds up to 30 mph may be possible. Gusts today will range from 35-45 mph, while the first half of Friday will observe blasts between 35-40 mph.

Expect showers and thunderstorms to develop today, with a severe threat this afternoon and evening. Large hail, greater than golf ball size, will be the main threat with initial storm development. A damaging wind threat will increase as a cold front approaches late this afternoon. There will also be a potential for tornadoes into the evening.

Strong winds will spread into the region behind the cold front this evening, with wind gusts up to 45 mph.

Friday through Wednesday

This weekend, freezing temperatures will be possible, particularly in areas north of the I-20 corridor. In addition, a late-season frost is likely Saturday morning in sheltered locations and where light winds dominate.

It will be near a warm front that will lift north through the region. Isolated severe thunderstorms containing large hail are possible this afternoon, with a line of showers and thunderstorms developing.

The severe weather threat will increase as the line of storms shifts southeast into the region this evening and overnight. Expect damaging winds, large hail, and isolated tornadoes to be possible. The severe weather will diminish late tonight across deep East Texas and North Central Louisiana as the air mass begins to stabilize with the cold air passage.

Friday through Wednesday

Expect temperatures to fall to near or below freezing Saturday and Sunday nights across portions of extreme Northeast Texas, Southwest Arkansas, and North Louisiana, as colder and drier air continues to spill south into the region this weekend. It would be best to take precautions to protect tender vegetation from these frigid temperatures.
