UPDATE: Storm threat continues for North Texas early Wednesday morning


FORT WORTH (TUSEN) – Extreme weather conditions are possible overnight until Wednesday morning. The main threats will come from high winds, large hail and possible isolated tornadoes. TUSEN 11 meteorologists are monitoring the situation.

After a dry but hot, windy and muggy Tuesday we still seem to be on the right track with the timing. Storms have started to develop along the dry line in the western counties and are heading towards the metroplex. We could see the line of thunderstorms approaching the metroplex between 1 and 2 a.m.

Destructive winds (over 60 mph) will be the main threat as they move through the DFW area, although an isolated tornado and large hail are possible, especially when storms start in the west.

These are typically EFO-EF1 tornadoes (winds below 100 mph) that last 10 minutes or less.

Storms could still produce severe weather (destructive winds are an ongoing threat) as they move through our eastern counties during the morning.

Violent weather

This is a fast moving line, so flash floods are not a problem, but many areas will see 1 to 2 inches of rain.

The rain and storms are expected to dissipate quickly, and we should see sunshine at 9am with strong northwest winds gusting to 30mph.

We have had seven consecutive days in DFW of high temperatures in the 80s. Monday October 25th was the hottest yet with a high of 87 °.

Please avoid traveling when storms arrive.

We are expecting a very windy afternoon on Tuesday. These winds will only increase overnight. As they turn north on Wednesday morning, they’ll just pick up. We expect wind gusts over 40 mph on Thursday as this powerful surface low combines with high pressure building in our west to create strong northerly winds.

If you have your Halloween decorations in your backyard, protect them as best you can. These strong winds will continue until Friday.

All that northerly wind will bring us out of the unusual hot temperatures of recent times. We will close the week with highs in the 70s. Another strong front is expected next week, we could easily have some highs remaining in the 60s!

Please continue to tune into TUSEN 11 and CBSN DFW for the latest weather information as we approach the threat of severe weather this evening and early Wednesday morning.

Storm warnings are expected.
