A line of strong to severe thunderstorms extends from Sherman to Denton to Aledo. This line is generally moving east at 55 to 70 MPH. The strongest storm is near Aledo and moving into Tarrant county with the potential of half-dollar to golfball size hail. It’ll impact downtown Fort Worth to the north loop within the next 15 minutes.
Storms farther northeast in Denton and Grayson counties are capable of producing quarter to half-dollar size hail. They’re also moving quickly off to the northeast.
As thunderstorms continue moving east over the next couple of hours we’ll have to watch for an increasing trend of damaging wind gusts and an isolated tornado. The highest threat for isolated tornadoes will be in Northeast Texas later this morning. Storms will exit the D/FW metroplex to the east by 7-8AM.
A severe thunderstorm watch remains in effect for the eastern half of North Texas and all of Northeast Texas until 11 AM. We’ll continue posting frequent updates on our social media accounts and occasional updates here to our blog.
