Another powerful storm system will bring a risk for severe weather to the region this afternoon and tonight in two rounds. The first round is expected to occur this afternoon and evening, with strong to severe thunderstorms along and ahead of a dryline to our west. Any storms that develop will have the potential to become severe quickly, bringing a risk for very large hail (perhaps larger than baseballs), damaging wind gusts, and a tornado or two. These storms will track towards the northeast. The second round will occur overnight and into Wednesday morning as a line of storms blasts from west to east across the entire region. The main hazards with this second round of storms will be damaging wind gusts, hail, and perhaps an isolated tornado. There will also be a risk for localized instances of flash flooding due to earlier heavy rainfall.
The storm threat continues for the eastern portions of North and Central Texas Wednesday afternoon and the main system continues to move east. Storms will be capable of producing large hail, damaging winds and isolated tornadoes.
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.
