Threat of severe weather in DFW this week – NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth

Our next severe weather risk comes Tuesday evening as an upper-level storm system and associated cold front moves through northern Texas.

The Storm Prediction Center placed the Dallas-Fort Worth area at slight risk of severe thunderstorms. On a scale of 1 to 5, with 5 being the most severe storm risk, we are below 2.

As the storms spread late Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, damaging winds, hail and a brief tornado will be possible.

As the storm line moves east Wednesday morning, damaging winds will be the main threat then.


Our forecast models have a stop line developing just before midnight on Tuesday.

The storms will move through the DFW area between 2:00 a.m. and 5:00 a.m. Wednesday.

By 6 a.m., storms will be in eastern counties and moving into eastern Texas.

Once the thunderstorms clear on Wednesday, the rest of the day will be dry. It will be noticeably cooler with highs in the 70s. Winds will be gusty throughout the day from the northwest at 30-40 mph.
