According to a report by National Weather Service Fort Worth, the Dallas-Fort Worth area is at risk for severe thunderstorms as well as large hail, flash floods, tornadoes and damaging winds. There is the potential for strong to severe thunderstorm developments, especially across Northeast Texas, and these thunderstorms will develop near I-35 and move eastward.

In addition, the website states “a critical fire weather threat will develop this afternoon across western portions of North Texas.” This means that fires that begin may develop and spread quickly due to warm and dry wind conditions. The NWS recommends avoiding activities with the potential to start grass fires.
