Severe thunderstorms possible from the central Plains to the upper Midwest

Severe thunderstorms containing damaging winds, large hail, heavy rainfall, and a few isolated tornadoes will be possible this afternoon into tonight from the central Plains to the upper Midwest. The threat is expected to shift east into the Great Lakes region by Friday. In addition, heavy rainfall could cause localized flooding concerns. Read More >

There will be a risk for strong to severe thunderstorms late Friday night into early Saturday morning as a complex of storms will likely race southeastward through parts of North and Central TX. Strong to severe thunderstorms are possible with the main risk being damaging straight line winds. Some near severe level hail cannot be completely ruled out. Heavy rain may also result in some minor instances of flash flooding.
Hot conditions are expected on Friday across much of North and Central TX. Afternoon high temperatures will range between the low 90s out across eastern zones to mid 90s to near 101 degrees across central and western zones. Afternoon heat index values will climb into the 100 to 107 degree range on Friday, resulting in dangerous heat conditions!
Independence Day is expected to be hot and dry across North and Central Texas. While there will be a slight chance of thunderstorms near the Red River on Sunday, thunderstorm chances should clear out by Sunday Night. Highs will be in the mid 90s with overnight lows in the mid 70s across our region. Heat indices will be in the 100 to 105 degree range, so make sure to stay hydrated during any outdoor activities!
The scattered showers and thunderstorms that developed yesterday produced locally heavy rain, frequent lightning, wind gusts over 40 mph and some pea size hail. The highest rainfall reports came from just south of Sherman to Dallas where 1 1/2 to over 2 inches fell.
