Severe weather outbreak in progress across TX & OK; expected to stay away from DFW

An ongoing severe weather outbreak is currently in progress across a large portion of Texas and Oklahoma.

Earlier today, forecasters upgraded a large portion of southwestern and central Oklahoma – including Oklahoma City – as well as areas of west Texas to a ‘HIGH’ risk of severe storms. The ‘HIGH’ risk is rarely issued from the National Weather Service’s Storm Prediction Center. Large, long-track tornadoes are expected along with “significant flooding.”

Luckily, the severe weather threat will stay well west and north of the immediate Dallas/ Fort Worth Metroplex. The NWS in Fort Worth sent up a weather balloon earlier today to check the strength of the atmosphere. The reading continued to show a strong ‘CAP’ over the Metroplex, which will hinder any thunderstorm development.

But up north in Oklahoma, atmospheric conditions appear to favor strong tornadoes and significant severe weather through tonight.

We’ll be keeping an eye on things just in case they change for the immediate DFW Metroplex, but for now, nothing is expected to impact our area.
