A severe thunderstorm extends from just west of Azle to Aledo to Cresson. This storm is capable of producing wind gusts of 60 to 70 MPH, dime to nickel size hail and very heavy rainfall. This storm is showing impressive velocity returns – indicating a high likelihood of damaging straight-line winds. Heavy rainfall will also produce isolated flash flooding. It would be advisable to move away from west-facing windows as this storm arrives. I cannot rule out a brief, weak tornado. Tune to local television media or our social media channels for updates.
