Alert

The NWS has issued a TORNADO WATCH for portions of North Central Texas including City of Fort Worth until MIDNIGHT.

Effective this Wednesday afternoon from 355 PM until Midnight CDT.

   * Primary threats include...
     A couple tornadoes possible
     Widespread large hail and scattered very large hail events to 4 inches in diameter likely
     Widespread damaging winds likely with isolated significant gusts to 80 mph possible

   SUMMARY...Severe thunderstorms are expected to quickly develop and increase through late afternoon and early evening within an extremely unstable environment across the region. Mid/high-level winds are strong, particularly by mid-June standards, which will initially support intense supercells capable of large hail along with a couple of tornadoes. Over time, multiple east/southeastward-moving storm clusters may evolve by evening, particularly across North Texas to far southwest Arkansas/northwest Louisiana, with widespread wind damage including wind-driven large hail.
REMEMBER...A Tornado Watch means conditions are favorable for tornadoes and severe thunderstorms in and close to the watch area. Persons in these areas should be on the lookout for threatening weather conditions and listen for later statements and possible warnings.
The Office of Emergency Management will continue to monitor for additional updates.

Instructions:

Be weather aware, tune in to trusted weather source for more information. Be aware on your commute home.
