Severe Weather Outlook for Today [UPDATE 1:30 p.m.]
Update 1:30 p.m.
The National Weather Service says the threat for large hail and tornadoes is now less than it looked yesterday, but is still not gone completely. It appears now the greatest threat is going to be from winds in excess of 70 mph.
Update 9 a.m.
A dry line is located near Dallas/Ft. Worth at this time. It will continue to move east today and will be the focal point that we are watching for severe weather to develop. As the atmosphere heats up and the line gets closer to East Texas, a line of possibly severe weather will develop. The main threat right now seems to be from strong winds. Hail, lightning, and heavy rainfall will be associated with these storms also, but the main concern will be from winds. Additionally, any storms that form ahead of the dry line will have to be watched closely for the development of tornadoes.
We will keep you posted and will interrupt programming for any warnings that are issued with updates from our weather partners at KLTV 7.
