Storms bring heavy rain and some hail Wednesday – NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth

Thunderstorms brought heavy rain and some hail Wednesday to North Texas, but the worst of the storms remained south in parts of Central Texas thanks to less favorable conditions for development in Dallas-Fort Worth.

The Storm Prediction Center has listed the DFW area as a marginal/level 1 threat for severe weather. A slight/level 2 threat has shifted to a strengthening/level 3 threat south of the DFW area Wednesday afternoon. These areas saw large hail, damaging winds, and numerous tornado warnings.

A tornado watch issued for parts of North Texas expired Wednesday afternoon just before 10 p.m. after the storms weakened.

a River flood warning Also in effect in five North Texas counties including Dallas, Hunt, Kaufman, Red River and Rockwall. See details about the latest severe weather alerts, including specific river flood warnings, here.

I know it’s like midnight. But we don’t get many storms that bring hailstorms of this size. So, yeah, I put my shoes on as quickly as I could with a coat and picked up a handful of hailstones the size of a large marble or a small piece larger than a quarter 🪙
