Dallas-Fort Worth was spared major damage from Sunday's storms, but conditions are ripe for more severe storms, including possible tornadoes on Tuesday.
More storms are expected this afternoon, tonight and into Tuesday as the system that dumped nearly an inch of rain at the Dallas-Fort Worth Airport has essentially parked itself over the north Texas area.
Meteorologists said severe weather is more likely on Tuesday.
Pea-size hail was reported in Oakhurst and at Interstate 35 and Basswood Boulevard in northeast Fort Worth around midmorning. Hail also fell in downtown Fort Worth and along Camp Bowie Boulevard, according to Twitter posts Monday morning.
Never miss a local story.
Penny- to quarter-sized hail was reported over a good portion of Tarrant County as the latest storm passed through, the weather service said.
Meacham Airport recorded about quarter-inch of rain with some localized street flooding, according to authorities.
Ted Ryan, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, said most of the wind damage caused by Sunday night's storms stretched from the west to east, north of Dallas-Fort Worth.
"Reports we had were mainly some downed trees and power lines that were occurring anywhere from Jack County, northwest of the Metroplex, up to Gainesville, north of the Metroplex, to Fannin County, northeast of the Metroplex," Ryan said this morning.
Ryan said heavy winds near Ponder in Denton County did blow some shingles from a mobile home.
Ashley Burton, a spokeswoman for Oncor, said the DFW area had approximately 6,200 power outages as of 9:30 p.m. Sunday. By 7:50 a.m. today, that number was down to 850 outages, not all of them weather-related, she said.
"Our crews have made significant progress since last night," Burton said. "They'll continue to work to get power back on as quickly and as safely as possible."
Today, Ryan said, there is a 30 percent change of rain, with a low severe weather threat. He said residents can expect scattered thunderstorms and showers in and around the area.
"It doesn't look like conditions are really quite as volatile as they were yesterday," Ryan said.
Temperatures will remain warm early in the week, with a high near 90 expected today. South winds will be from 15 to 25 mph, with gusts as high as 30 mph, the weather service said.
More severe weather is expected Tuesday afternoon and evening.
"Conditions would be favorable for more tornadic activity tomorrow," Ryan said.
The skies should remain calm once night falls on Monday but the chance for rain is forecast to reach 60 percent on Tuesday, according to Jennifer Dunn, National Weather Service meteorologist.
Some storms on Tuesday could be severe as a strong upper-level disturbance comes into the North Texas area, Dunn said.
The greatest threat with this weather system is hail, but the system could also spawn strong winds and a tornado is not out of the realm of possibility, Dunn said.
"The dry line is well to the west of us," Dunn said. “It's just a matter of how well these storms hold together as they approach us."
