Tornado Watch issued for parts of North Texas including Denton County

This includes Denton County and NW of there. Softball sized hail, 80 MPH winds, and a few tornadoes are possible.



The National Weather Service issued a Tornado Watch on Monday afternoon for portions of North Texas until 9 p.m., covering Cooke, Denton, Grayson, and Wise counties, extending northwest to Wichita Falls into Oklahoma.

The risk of severe storms increases from this afternoon into the evening.

While it’s not expected to be widespread, any storms that develop and breach the cap along the dryline could generate large hail.

The tornado risk in North Texas is minimal, with a higher risk along the Red River and in the eastern part of Oklahoma.

The timeframe for isolated severe storms in the Dallas-Fort Worth region is expected to be from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., beginning earlier to the west and later to the east.

Some breaks in the clouds may occur this afternoon, particularly west of the Dallas-Fort Worth area, with temperatures reaching the low 80s.

As the storms move eastward overnight, a cold front will approach by tomorrow morning, bringing along wrap-around clouds, gusty winds, and cooler temperatures.

Highs in the afternoon will remain steady in the low 60s.
