Sorry for the late post on this but I just walked back in the door after chasing today (and being chased by storms the whole way home). A severe thunderstorm is located 5 miles northwest of Iowa Park in Wichita County in Northwest Texas. This storm is capable of producing half-dollar size hail along with copious amounts of pea-penny size hail. Localized wind gusts up to 60 MPH are also possible. The strongest part of this storm will impact Backburnett within the next 30 minutes but gusty winds are possible further south/southeast in Wichita Falls.
