Meteorologists are forecasting showers and thunderstorms across the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex in the afternoon and through the evening Wednesday, with the possibility that some storms may become severe.

The National Weather Service in Fort Worth predicted that a “strong disturbance” arriving in the afternoon would bring scattered showers and storms, “with a threat for severe storms containing large hail and damaging winds,” possibly in excess of 60 mph. The main window for this severe weather is between 4 to 10 p.m.

Monique Sellers, a meteorologist with the NWS in Fort Worth, told The Dallas Express that these storms will be scattered and that no tornadic activity is expected at this time.

“The overall storm threat is pretty low, though, so this is not expected to be any sort of widespread severe weather event,” said Sellers. “The coverage is gonna be pretty isolated to scattered at best.”

These storm systems are expected to shift southeast of the metroplex by the late evening hours.

Sellers said that the rest of the week will see warmer, windier, and more humid conditions across North Texas. Temperatures are expected to rise into the 70s for the remainder of the work week into the 80s throughout the weekend.

March 29 and 30 are expected to be the windiest days, with wind speeds between 20 to 30 miles per hour.

A chance of rain will return early next week with the arrival of a cold front.
