In spite of the fact that a dryline was moving into the region on Tuesday, the CAP maintained its hold, and the amount of storm activity that occurred was little throughout the afternoon and evening. Storms are virtually guaranteed to hit certain sections of North Texas as a cold front moves through the region overnight and into Wednesday morning.
After midnight, the Storm Prediction Center has placed portions of North Texas along and to the east of I-35 in an area that is at a level 2 or modest risk for the development of severe storms. The threat level increases to level 3 (increased risk) as the distance traveled to the north and east grows. The primary hazards that we are keeping an eye out for are destructive winds and huge hail.
The Cold Front Approaches
After 2 am, we should start to see the beginning of the storms, and they should last until daylight. When the cold front approaches the 35 corridors, we will keep an eye out for the development of storms that will travel swiftly to the east.
You won’t see much of anything if you travel west of Highway 35. And we can only hope that the majority of North Texas remains asleep throughout the storms so that they have little to no influence.
If you live to the east of the metroplex, you should be prepared for some activity on the radar if you leave the house early, especially between the hours of 4 and 5 in the morning. The heavy Storms Strike Texas in north Texas you can check this.
We should be free of rain and storms by Wednesday midday, and we should be able to enjoy the sunshine. Expect highs to be close to 70 degrees. The afternoons of Thursday and Friday should feel more comfortable with temperatures in the 60s, but a return to higher temperatures is forecast for the weekend.
