After a very crazy afternoon, things will change. But first, let's talk about today.
As expected, numerous severe storms, some very intense, occurred in DFW today. We even had a tornado warning for the Plano area, and the McKinney/Allen area. The NWS will be surveying for damage.
Very large hail also occurred today. Some areas had hail larger than baseball size. These storms were very intense making for a very scary day for some. And unfortunately, this is the first of many significant severe risks. We are in our prime tornado season now through June 1st. We will have plenty more days like today in the next 2 months, so be prepared.
The strong cold front is now through the DFW area, and is pushing the severe storms southeast of our area.
We have turned colder into the 50s/60s. We will fall into the mid 30s overnight.
We will monitor a disturbance in Oklahoma that may bring a chance of light sleet or freezing rain to parts of the region tomorrow morning. If the DFW area falls a degree or two colder than expected, some light wintry precipitation is possible. The main area of winter weather will be north of DFW.
While we dont expect a big storm, a few areas northwest of the metroplex may see light accumulations leading to a slick spot or two mainly on bridges and overpasses. I don't see any travel impacts for the DFW area.
Its not completely ruled out to see a few flakes of snow or pellets of sleet tomorrow morning.
Again, NO ACCUMULATIONS OR IMPACTS for the DFW area.
We will likely see all light rain, but again if we fall a degree or two colder, I can't rule out a very light wintry mix.
We will only warm to the lower 40s according to the NAM. I will have a forecast high of 44°F.
We will fall to near freezing Sunday morning, but will quickly reach the upper 50s and 60s.
We may have a brief chance of a shower early Monday morning. (Less than 20%)
We will warm up and be mainly dry mid week.
Storm chances return next Friday, and yet again, some of those may be severe.
Looking towards mid/late April, we may turn very active and stormy, leading to more severe weather.
