The Storm Prediction Center has issued a risk of <strong class=’StrictlyAutoTagBold’>severestrong> weather for much of Northwest <strong class=’StrictlyAutoTagBold’>Texasstrong> and western portions of North <strong class=’StrictlyAutoTagBold’>Texasstrong> for late this afternoon into the evening hours. The overall coverage of <strong class=’StrictlyAutoTagBold’>stormsstrong> is in question because of a strong cap in place. I wouldn’t be surprised to see no <strong class=’StrictlyAutoTagBold’>stormsstrong> <strong class=’StrictlyAutoTagBold’>todaystrong> along the dryline, but if <strong class=’StrictlyAutoTagBold’>stormsstrong> are able to form, ingredients are quite favorable for <strong class=’StrictlyAutoTagBold’>severestrong> weather. Very large, damaging hail will be the main threat with any storm that is able to form this afternoon. A tornado is not out of the question. If <strong class=’StrictlyAutoTagBold’>stormsstrong> are able to form into a cluster or complex this evening, the threat for damaging outflow winds would also increase.

We’ll have a better idea by noontime with how many <strong class=’StrictlyAutoTagBold’>stormsstrong> we expect, or if we’ll even get any at all. Storms will remain northwest of D/FW as a strong cap will remain in place.
