This is going to be a short blog because we’re out chasing but I felt the need to share the latest information. The Storm Prediction Center has upgraded North Texas, including the D/FW Metroplex, to a Level 4 Moderate Risk of Severe Weather. This is an increase from the Level 3 Enhanced earlier. Skies have cleared and a weather balloon launched in Fort Worth showed the atmosphere is highly favorable for a significant severe weather threat this afternoon and evening. Supercells are expected to develop in western North Texas and move east with giant hail up to the size of softballs, damaging wind gusts over 70 MPH, and multiple tornadoes possible. The number of storms that will develop is still in question – but any storm that does go up will have a significant severe weather threat. Stay weather aware this evening folks!
