Tornado WATCH issued for a portion of North Texas, including DFW

The National Weather Service has issued a Tornado WATCH for a portion of north end of North Central Texas, including the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex, until 11pm tonight.

There is a chance for strong to severe thunderstorms this evening. Heavy rainfall, frequent lightning, large hail, and damaging winds are all a possibility. A few tornadoes may also develop in any of the stronger storms.

A tornado watch means atmospheric conditions are favorable for supercell thunderstorms to develop tornadoes. Please remain informed and stay updated on the forecast throughout the day.
