Severe Thunderstorms, And Perhaps Hail, Could Hit North Texas This Afternoon

Jun 12, 2014

After this morning's thunderstorms, expect another round of rain this afternoon – and things could get severe. But changing conditions mean that the most likely area for severe weather is south of Dallas-Fort Worth.

Specifically, areas south of a line from Breckenridge to Hillsboro to Palestine could see the more severe storms, the National Weather Service says.  But hail is likely for Dallas-Fort Worth. Some parts of North Texas could see hail as big as baseballs, winds of up to 70 mph, and perhaps a few tornadoes.

The forecast has changed throughout the day -- at first, forecasters called for the most severe storms to hit areas closer to Dallas-Fort Worth. But as the day advances, a so-called outflow boundary has been pushed the more severe weather to the south of Dallas-Fort Worth.

Thunderstorm chances should end by Friday’s sunrise.

Earlier Thursday, a severe thunderstorm warning and flash flood warning were in effect for parts of North Texas.
