The first tornado watch of the day has been issued for Northwest Texas, West-Central Texas, and the Concho Valley until 10 PM. We have thunderstorms beginning to fire up just east of a dryline. These storms will likely become severe as they move east into a more favorable environment for severe weather. Supercells with very large hail, damaging winds, and a few tornadoes are possible. Additional tornado watches will likely be issued later this afternoon for North and Central Texas so stay weather aware!
