A tornado watch is now in effect through 2 AM Monday for Texoma, North Texas, and portions of the northern Brazos Valley. This watch includes Bowie, Graham, Breckenridge, Mineral Wells, Cisco, Brownwood, Hamilton, Killeen, Cameron, Waco, Mexia, Palestine, Corsicana, Cleburne, Weatherford, Fort Worth, Dallas, Denton, McKinney, Gainesville, Sherman, Paris, and Canton.

A line of severe thunderstorms will erupt over the next few hours in western North Texas south into the western Hill Country. They’ll move east/northeast quickly once they develop. Once storms develop, they are likely to become severe with a threat of damaging straight-line winds, large hail, and possibility a few tornadoes. Low-level wind shear will be extreme, but if storms can remain linear (in a solid squall line), we’ll hopefully keep the tornadoes brief and weak.

Any discrete supercells or ‘breaks’ in line segments may result in a significant tornado threat. Hurricane-force winds over 75 MPH are also possible in the most intense storms. The relative highest threat for tornadoes should be north of Highway 84, but an isolated tornado will be possible overnight in Hill Country, Central Texas, and Brazos Valley.

We’ve got folks storm chasing in Southwest Oklahoma, but they’ll make it south of the Red River to cover storms in Texas later this evening. You can watch their live stream here on YouTube. We’ll also be providing live severe weather coverage from TSC HQ later this evening. That live video will be posted directly to this website/app when we’re live.
