8:30am: Line of strong to severe thunderstorms headed this way

A squall line of heavy and potentially severe thunderstorms is headed this direction and will arrive within the next few hours.

High winds, heavy rainfall, and frequent lightning have developed in these thunderstorms and will hit our area soon. There is a chance that some storms may become severe as the line moves through.

Between 10am and 12pm is the best time frame for folks in the DFW Metroplex to experience these storms. If you have plans outdoors, make arrangements now and plan accordingly. Frequent lightning is a danger to those outside.

The chance for a tornado is pretty low, but not zero. Have a way to receive severe weather alerts and plan to be indoors through lunchtime.
