Severe Thunderstorm Watch now in effect for eastern sections of North Texas and portions of Central Texas until 1 AM CT. This watch includes Gatesville, Waco, Cameron, Palestine, Athen, Terrell, Greenville, Bonham, Paris, and Sulphur Springs. It also does include all of the D/FW Metroplex. Strongest storms may produce hail up to the size of golfballs, wind gusts to 70 MPH, and even a tornado. I do believe we will see storms exit the watch area prior to 1 AM so hopefully we’ll be able to get this watch cancelled before that point.
