The warming trend will continue through tonight as an upper level ridge builds overhead. High temperatures today will climb into the mid and upper 70s, while tonight's low should remain in the 55 to 60 degree range. Otherwise, breezy conditions can be expected, with south to southeast winds increasing to 15-20 MPH.
The threat for very heavy rainfall and flooding will increase across all of North Texas Monday through Wednesday of next week. A slow moving upper low will combine with a stalled frontal boundary and copious amounts of moisture to produce several days of rain and thunderstorms. Many areas will see 2-4" of rain with heavier amounts possible.
A dryline will move into the region Sunday afternoon and will likely help a few storms develop. Any storms that develop would have the potential to be severe with mainly a large hail threat. Most of this activity is expected to remain west of I-35.
We will have a SKYWARN Basic Class on Thursday, March 22nd in Gun Barrel City (Henderson County). The class will be from 7 pm to 9 pm. Classes are free and registration is not required! We hope to see you there!

What is NOAA Weather Radio?     

picture of noaa weather radio receiverNOAA Weather Radio is a service of NOAA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration of the U.S. Department of Commerce. The broadcasts originate from local National Weather Service Offices around the country and broadcast continuous weather information 24 hours a day 7 days a week. In addition, other natural disasters and national emergencies are broadcast when appropriate.

At the National Weather Service Office in Fort Worth the information broadcast is tailored to the weather needs of the people of North Texas. Routine programming include a short term weather forecast, a 7 day forecast for the listening area and hourly weather information. In times of hazardous weather, special products, such as watches, warnings, special weather statements and outlooks will be broadcast.

One of the unique features of NOAA Weather Radio is the ability to receive up to the second information on severe weather, such as severe thunderstorms, tornadoes and flash floods. Many weather Radio receivers are equipped with a tone alert feature. These receivers will either sound an alarm, or when operated in muted mode, will be automatically turned on so that the warning message will be heard. These tone alerts are activated by the National Weather Office where all severe weather warnings originate.

The National Weather Service Office in Fort Worth operates 13 Radio consoles broadcasting from 13 transmitters located across North Texas.
