Severe Storms Shift into the Lower Mississippi Valley and Lower Ohio Valley Monday

The focus for severe storms will shift to the Lower Mississippi Valley and portions of the Tennessee Valley and Ohio Valley Monday. Damaging winds, hail and an isolated tornado or two will all be possible. Elsewhere, a wintry mix will impact portions of New England while heavy rain and high elevation snow continue in the northwest U.S. Read More >

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.
