Storms could bring hail, damaging winds to Dallas-Fort Worth late Sunday
North Texas faces a stormy Sunday evening.
Ahead of a cold front, thunderstorms will be possible in Dallas-Fort Worth late Sunday, and some of those storms could be severe, with the potential for hail and noxious winds, said KXAS-TV (NBC5) weather anchor Keisha Burns.
“Not all locations will see the storm probability today, but that chance will be there,” she said.
North Texas could face two rounds of storms on Sunday. The first is more likely in northern areas – including Denton and Collin counties – between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m., Burns said. The second round will cover all of Dallas-Fort Worth sooner after midnight.
The National Weather Service warned of hail up to 2 inches in diameter, noxious winds between 60 and 80 miles per hour, and heavy rain.
A chance for tornadoes cannot be ruled out Sunday evening until early Monday, said the meteorologist for the national weather service Lamont Bain.
“We will monitor this potential closely,” he said. “We’ll look at about five. [to] Eight hour window in which strong to severe storms could hit our area, with the greatest potential for severe weather near and north of I-20. “
Any storms that develop are expected to disappear from the area at dawn on Monday, Bain said.
“It’ll be a pretty good day when the rain stops and the sky is clear,” he said.
After Sunday, North Texans can expect a dry week, according to Burns, with highs in the 50s and 60s.
