Weather experts are warning of the possibility of severe storms, including the potential for tornadic activity, for some portions of the state mid-week.

Meteorologists forecast a chance for showers across the DFW region and strong storms to the east of the metroplex, as previously reported by The Dallas Express.

The National Weather Service in Fort Worth predicted cloudy skies and some showers late Wednesday evening ahead of the main storm threat.

“Increasing cloud cover is expected [November 29] with afternoon highs in the low to mid-60s, near-normal for this time of year,” said the NWS on its website. “Chances for rain showers, possibly a few thunderstorms, return to the region later tonight into Thursday morning, primarily along/east of I-35.”

These predictions have since been updated to a severe threat for portions of eastern Central Texas and the Brazos Valley on November 30. The greatest chance for these severe storms will be from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

“Isolated tornadoes, hail, and damaging wind gusts will be possible in the yellow-circled area,” said the NWS website. “Precipitation will exit to the east late Thursday evening as a cold front begins pushing into North Texas.”

Flooding is also an associated risk with these storms. However, of the severe weather threats, this is the lowest.

DFW is expected to remain dry this weekend, with high temperatures in the 60s and low 70s and overnight lows in the 30s and 40s. These conditions are predicted to persist into the following week.

Citizens are advised to stay weather aware and have ways of receiving weather reports.
