A line of strong thunderstorms began move through Tarrant County about 9 p.m. Wednesday, packing high winds and light hail in some places.
A cool front would follow, the National Weather Service in Fort Worth reported.
The weather service issued a severe thunderstorm warning until 10:30 p.m.
The line of storms stretched from Durant, Okla, to just north of Stephenville at 8:45 p.m., before sweeping across the Dallas-Fort Worth area from the southwest to northeast, said meteorologist Matt Bishop.
Quarter-sized hail was reported as the storm moved through Saginaw, up through Haslet and Keller and to northeast Tarrant County.
Wind gusts could possibly reach 60 mph, he said.
Bishop called the violent weather a “typical spring storm system. Behind this line of storms we will actually see a cold front push through. It should be here by midnight.”
Earlier, storms in Grayson County produced golf ball-size hail, Bishop said, saying it was too soon to know if it caused significant damage.
Before the thunderstorms rolled in, Wednesday was a warm and sunny day, with a high of 82.
