Heavy Storms Monday – NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth

A strong storm system approaching Dallas-Fort Worth from the west brings the possibility of tornadoes, large hail, damaging winds and flooding Monday afternoon and evening.

NBC 5 Meteorologist Grant Johnston said the storm system is responsible for strong winds during the day. A Wind advice is in effect from noon to 6 p.m. for several counties in North Texas. Southeast winds will be between 20 and 25 mph with gusts up to 45 mph.

The timing for possible severe storms appears to be between noon and 8pm

Johnston said the risk of severe weather is significant as much of the DFW area is under pressure IMPROVED RISK (level 3 out of 5) for severe storms. Farther south and southeast, a MODERATE RISK (level 4 out of 5) includes areas around Waco, Austin, College Station, and Palestine.

These are the areas where supercell thunderstorms can occur that produce very large hail and long-track tornadoes.

“Stay alert and be ready to take shelter when storms approach your area. All forms of severe weather possible,” NBC 5 Chief Meteorologist Rick Mitchell said Sunday.

“If severe weather is approaching you, seek shelter at the lowest level of the structure you are in,” Mitchell said. “Put as many walls as possible between you and the outside. An interior room like a bathroom or closet is good. Be prepared, don’t be afraid.”

Rain totals will likely be in the 1-2 inch range.

All storms will move east between 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. Monday.

Much cooler weather will arrive on Tuesday, peaking only in the 1950s. The normal peak for this time of year is 70.

Unfortunately, winds will also be strong Tuesday and Wednesday, so the threat of more wildfires is likely to return.

A powerful storm system is approaching from the west. It is the reason for the strong winds over North Texas and it will contribute to thunderstorms later in the day.
