A line of thunderstorms is expected to develop along a cold front on Tuesday morning, according to the National Weather Service.

These storms are expected to be severe, possibly producing strong winds, hail, and tornadoes.

This same weather system is the cause of winter storm warnings and flood warnings in the west, including states such as Washington, Idaho, Oregon, Nevada, and California.

A “Slight Risk” is in effect for areas such as eastern Texas, Louisiana, southern Arkansas, and southwestern Mississippi.

An outbreak of severe weather occurred earlier in November across the south, killing two people, as previously reported by The Dallas Express.

Sarah Varnes with the National Weather Service in Fort Worth told The Dallas Express that the overall threat of severe weather for North Texas is low, but is not ruled out.

The highest threat of severe weather will be for East Texas, stretching into Louisiana.

“The tornado threat is not zero, but it looks like the better threat will remain east of the Dallas Area,” said Varnes. “So, we’re probably going to be looking at a wind threat and possibly a small hail threat as well,” she continued.

Varnes said the largest possible sized hail for North Texas will be quarter-sized.

Neither DFW International Airport nor Dallas Love Field has so far reported any expected delays due to the incoming weather.
