Looking at newest guidance, the area of heavy thunderstorms may not reach the Dallas/Fort Worth area until daybreak tomorrow. This helps migitate our severe weather risk, so I'll remove the risk of severe storms from the forecast overnight, but will keep strong storms in the forecast, some of which may produce pocket change hail and 50mph wind gusts. I do think most storms will remain BELOW severe limits, but one or two *may* attempt to reach severe limits. I think it's very unlikely for any watch to be issued for the DFW metroplex. Widespread thunderstorm activity is expected to continue through tomorrow morning, with rapid development likely close to midday. Some of these storms may produce hail and gusty winds, but sizes of hail and gusts of wind should remain below severe limits. As the cold front approaches tomorrow evening, a squall line of strong storms will develop. Some of these may produce a small damaging wind threat, with the potential of 60mph winds possible in some storms. That DOES reach severe limits, so a marginal risk of severe storms may be issued for tomorrow. Again, a watch seems unlikely with this but will keep an eye on forecast trends.
Concerning Wednesday: The newest guidance has the afternoon freezing line reaching the I/35 corridor during the afternoon hours. Therefore, have lowered high temperatures to the upper 30s Wednesday afternoon. Leaving dominant precipitation type all rain for now, but if the guidance continues this easterly trend of the freezing line, I will introduce freezing rain to the forecast package. All updates to this 7 day forecast will occur tomorrow morning, with the newest seven day being uploaded to the website by 6:30AM in the morning.
