A Tornado Watch has been issued for parts of North and Central Texas through 11 pm tonight (Tuesday night). The main threats are: few tornadoes, large hail, and damaging winds up to 70 mph. Remember, a Tornado Watch means that conditions are favorable for tornadoes and severe thunderstorms in and close to the watch area. Persons in these areas, be on the lookout for threatening weather conditions and listen for later statements and possible warnings.
Severe thunderstorms are ongoing near and north of Abilene, and are tracking towards the northeast along a warm front. These storms have a history of producing tornadoes and large hail. As these storms move northeast, the severe weather threat is expected to increase over portions of Stephens, Young, Jack, and Montague Counties over the next several hours. A Tornado Watch continues for areas north and west of the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex through 11:00 PM CDT this evening.
The weather will settle down for a day or two before the next storm system makes it way from the west. Highs will range from the 60s-70s on Thursday and 70s-80s Friday and Saturday. Storm chances will increase Saturday but it is still uncertain if there will be enough energy in the atmosphere for strong/severe storms.
