The Storm Prediction Center has increased the probability of severe weather occuring across North Texas and South/Southeastern Oklahoma later this evening into the overnight hours. While the 5% contour remains, a 15% contour has been introduced, thus we now have a standard risk of severe weather across North Texas. As we explained in the morning blog post, the primary severe weather threats will be large hail and damaging outflow winds as a squall line pushes through with the cold front. This is not expected to be a significant severe weather event, but as we saw in September, even when we have marginally severe storms move through the metroplex, they have a tendency to make a big impact in terms of power outages. We’ll be out chasing later this evening and should have our live stream up and running. Stay tuned!
