A developing storm system will bring the heavy rain and potential for severe weather across North Texas tonight.

What You Need To Know

  • Strong storms could impact parts of Texas tonight

  • North Texas faces the biggest risk for severe weather

  • Damaging wind gusts and hail are the primary concerns

  • A few tornadoes can't be ruled out

A few strong to severe thunderstorms are possible across North Texas and the eastern half of Oklahoma tonight. The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has put the region under a marginal to slight risk for severe weather, which includes the Dallas-Fort Worth metro.

These storms may begin as early as mid- and late afternoon, given sufficient moisture and favorable surface heating behind a dry line near the Permian Basin.

As the upper-level disturbance swings across the region, a few supercells and perhaps some bowing clusters, could develop after 6 p.m. 

Damaging wind gusts and large hail remain the biggest threats from stronger storms. However, a few tornadoes can't be ruled out overnight.

The severe potential will be limited by a strong cap in the middle atmosphere, but if any storms break through, they could quickly become severe.

Stay aware and have at least two ways to receive alerts. Set a plan for emergency actions to take for your family. The severe weather threat will end by midday Tuesday.
