Some places have seen some rain over the last few days, and that chance continues for the first part of this week. However, the big story for this week is the chance for severe weather on Tuesday.
The Storm Prediction Center has placed several North Texas counties, including Hunt, Delta and Lamar Counties under a “Slight” (2/5) risk for severe weather on Tuesday. The main threats will be damaging straight-line winds and large hail. The tornado threat is low, but not zero! Some local flooding may also be possible.
The National Weather Service is expecting a line of thunderstorms to form west of the Metroplex during the morning hours and move towards Northeast Texas by early afternoon.
Two scenarios are possible:
1. The line continues to move through the Metroplex and Northeast Texas during the afternoon hours.
2. The line breaks up during morning hours, and then reforms later in the day, moving through Northeast Texas by during late afternoon/evening.
If isolated storms are able to develop ahead of the main line, they will have a chance of producing a brief tornado.
It’s important to state that this is not expected to be an outbreak of severe weather, and we are not anticipating widespread severe storms. The majority of us will not see severe weather on Tuesday, but don’t let that get your guard down!
Later in the week
After the rain and storms move through on Tuesday, sunshine is expected with much cooler temperatures! Highs are expected to be in mid-70s during the week, and could drop down to the 60s for the weekend!
