Two areas of severe thunderstorms continue across our county warning area. The first is a cluster of thunderstorms in Northeast Texas moving through Delta, Fannin, Hunt, and Lamar Counties. These thunderstorms are moving towards the northeast at about 35 MPH, and will be capable of producing half dollar-sized hail and wind gusts in excess of 65 MPH. In Central Texas, another severe thunderstorm is moving through parts of Bell, Coryell, Falls, and McLennan Counties, and is moving towards the east at about 40 MPH. This thunderstorm is capable of producing quarter-sized hail and wind gusts in excess of 60 MPH. A Severe Thunderstorm Watch continues for portions of North and Central Texas through 1:00 AM CDT tonight.
The Tornado Watch that was in effect for portions of North Texas was allowed to expire at 11:00 PM CDT. The Severe Thunderstorm Watch has been expanded in area, and extended until 1:00 AM CDT, and remains in effect for portions of North and Central Texas. Thunderstorms will continue to be capable of producing large hail in excess of one inch in diameter and damaging wind gusts in excess of 65 MPH. The tornado threat has diminished for the most part, but a very brief tornado or two cannot be completely ruled out. Finally, minor flooding of typically flood-prone areas will also be possible.
A potent storm system will impact the region during the middle of the week. Showers and thunderstorms will approach from West Texas late Tuesday, with widespread heavy rainfall expected during the day Wednesday. This will likely be the most significant widespread rain event in many weeks. Severe weather will be possible, but flooding issues will be the greater concern. Rain chances will diminish on Thursday.
A very interesting and active weather week ahead for North and Central Texas. Monday looks dry and mild for most of the region, however the next chance for showers and storms arrive Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday. Widespread heavy rain is expected during the day Wednesday. Rain chances will end on Thursday, and Friday will be a dry and pleasant day.
We will host the LAST SKYWARN class of the year this Monday, March 27th, from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM at the Somervell County Fire Department in Glen Rose, Texas. You do NOT have to be a resident of Somervell County to attend. Classes are FREE with no registration required. If you want to become a SKYWARN spotter and do your part to help the NWS Fort Worth and other local agencies and jurisdictions during severe weather, you'll definitely want to attend.
