Isolated to scattered severe storms are possible late Sunday afternoon through Sunday evening with the higher threat for severe storms north of Interstate 20. South of this area, extending into Central Texas, a few isolated storms are possible. The main threats with any severe storms will be large hail and damaging winds. Baseball sized hail or larger is possible. A few tornadoes are also possible, in particular during the evening hours and along and north of Interstate 20. Elevated fire weather conditions will exist behind the dryline due to breezy winds and low humidity.
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.
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.
