The latest update from the Storm Prediction Center continues to indicate the chance for strong to severe storm development during the overnight into early morning hours across parts of north central and northeast Texas. To cover this possibility, a Slight Risk (Level 1) has been outlined for parts of central Oklahoma down into north central, northeast and eastern Texas. Current forecaster thinking has a complex of storms developing after midnight across central Oklahoma as additional lift from an approaching upper level disturbance arrives. Once these storms form, they will travel south/southeast and are expected to cross the Red River into northern Texas during the pre-dawn hours. Confidence is not extremely high on how this will play out tomorrow morning, but the ingredients will be in place for at least a marginal chance for a few strong storms with damaging winds and hail as the main threats. Conditions will be watched closely overnight, and if it looks like the storms will end up stronger and more widespread than currently anticipated, we could see an upgrade to a Slight Risk (Level 2). In addition to damaging winds and hail, we may also see a threat for heavy rainfall and some flooding, especially east of the immediate DFW metroplex. Be sure to check local media for road conditions before heading off to work tomorrow and allow extra time to reach your destination safely if heavy rainfall is impacting your location.
