A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is now in effect for parts of Central and North Texas until 11:00 AM. Large hail will be the main threat, although damaging winds are also possible. The tornado threat is low, but storm lines can often produce compact tornadoes.


Showers and thunderstorms will continue to spread across the area this morning, especially south of the I-20 corridor. Some storms may become dangerous to severe. The greatest threat of all severe weather patterns will be across Central Texas. You have multiple ways to receive warnings!


A storm system moving through today will bring at least an average 40 to 50% chance of snow in the pink areas. There is less than a 20% chance of accumulations up to half an inch. Don’t expect impacts except on grassy and elevated surfaces. The roads will be impassable!


How can snow accumulate on the grass and not on the roads? The warm concrete temperatures will quickly melt any snowfall. Grass surfaces typically have cooler temperatures than concrete. Therefore, the snow will melt at a much slower rate.


After an active weekend, dry and pleasant weather conditions will continue through next week. A slight warming trend is expected, with temperatures in the 60s to lows in the 70s by Thursday. The next round of rain will arrive on Friday and continue into the following weekend.

Today and tonight

Thunderstorms will continue to move through north and central Texas early this morning. Expect a few severe storms with large hail and strong wind gusts, with the most severe threat south of I-20. Heavy rain may cause minor urban and river flooding in areas east of I-35 and south of I-20. Thunderstorm chances end from west to east late Sunday morning.

Snow is possible across western North Texas Sunday night into Monday morning. Do not expect any travel effects.
