A large complex of thunderstorms…the weather nerd term would be Mesoscale Convective System (MCS)… is wreaking havoc across north Texas this evening and it’s heading straight for the DFW metroplex.  Again. Multiple reports of damaging winds have been coming across the interwebs including some uprooted trees, downed power lines and flying cows.  I’m kidding about the flying cows, but this MCS is packing a punch and leaving wind damage and flooded roadways in its wake.  The entire leading edge of this system is severe warned for high winds and 1 inch hail, and it will continue to advance into the western portions of the DFW metroplex shortly after dark.  This line is expected to hold together as it crosses the DFW metro area after dark with high winds as the main threat along with copious amounts of rain.  A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is in place for all of north central Texas until 11pm.  Flash Flood Watches are also in place across the area with some locations receiving upwards of 2 – 3 inches of rainfall with these storms.
