National Weather Service United States Department of Commerce

Strong to severe thunderstorms will be possible this morning . The initial threat will be from large hail, but as the storms move east and encounters better moisture, instability and wind shear, the threat for damaging winds and even a few tornadoes will increase. Some heavy rainfall and flooding will also be possible.
A Flood Watch is in effect through noon today in the light green shaded counties and through 4 PM in the dark green shaded counties. Additional rainfall accumulations of one to two inches (locally higher) can be expected. Soils are saturated across North Texas, and any additional rainfall will result in rapid runoff, likely leading to flooding.
Join us to our next SKYWARN Class on Saturday February 24th from 9 AM through 4 PM in Denton, TX. . We will host both Basic and Advanced classes at the Texas Woman's University (Margo Jones Performance Hall). Classes are FREE and there is no registration needed. We will see you there!
