Storms bring tornado warnings, damaging wind to area

Severe thunderstorms hit Grayson and Collin counties late Monday, bringing tornado warnings, rain and heavy winds.

One person was injured in Collinsville, in Grayson County, and there were reports of buildings being damaged west of Sherman and Denison, according to the National Weather Service.

In Collin County, radar showed the possible development of a tornado near Lucas and Fairview, southeast of McKinney, between 11 and 11:30 p.m., but nothing was confirmed, said Vick Corbelli, a meterologist with the weather service in Fort Worth.

The storm continued to move to the northeast into Hunt and Fannin counties.

Tarrant County received some light rain, but no severe storms as of midnight.

Corbelli said that tornadoes are rare in December but that in Texas, "there's not a month that doesn't go without a chance for a tornado."

Monday's storms should give way to cooler temperatures today.

Temperatures are expected to reach the high 50s, with a slight chance of rain, in the early afternoon, but they should dip into the 30s overnight as a front moves in from the north. Winds 20 to 25 mph, with gusts up to 35 mph, are expected tonight and Wednesday.

Wednesday will be sunny but temperatures aren’t expected to get past 50, according to the weather service. Overnight temperatures will be in the low 30s.
