Tonight’s forecast calls for a 20-30 percent chance of thunderstorms with the possibility of hail up to a quarter-inch in North Texas.
The possibility of severe storms increases to a 50-60 percent chance on Wednesday evening, when thunderstorms bringing high winds, golf ball-sized hail and isolated tornadoes are expected.
“Right now it doesn’t look like there will be any strong tornadoes but they [storms] could still cause damage,” said Jennifer Dunn, National Weather Service meteorologist. “It’s something that we can analyze as the event is unfolding.”
Dunn said the Wednesday storm could generate rain with the possibility of flash flooding.
Tuesday’s high temperature is predicted to be 72 degrees, with a low of 66 tonight.
Wednesday’s high should be in the upper 70s, but temperatures will cool off the rest of the week with highs in the 60s and low 70s.
Warmer weather could return Sunday with a high around 80, and continue into early next week.
