Storm Timeline For Monday, April 2

605PM - Isolated storms bubbling up along dryline near Abilene.  Radar snapshot as of 605pm.


544pm - The Severe Tstorm Watch for eastern parts of Texas has been dropped.  Severe Tstorm Watch continues for NorthWest Texas until 11pm.  It is along the dryline where storms will be possible.  As of 545pm, only a few storms are popping in Oklahoma but nothing in Texas.  Will continue to watch.

3:40 pm - Here's a look at that new watch.


3:35 pm - A new SEVERE T'STORM WATCH is in effect until 11pm for our far western counties.  As expected, storms will fire along a dryline positioned closer to Wichita Falls to Abilene at this time, but these storms have a chance when they form to affect Jack, Young and Palo Pinto counties closer to 10 to 11p tonight.

3:30 pm - Looking for strong to severe t'storms to continue this afternoon in NE Texas, moving south to north. These storms are associated with a low pressure system that is moving out of Texas into Louisiana. Storm threat should end by 5-7p in our eastern counties. Then all eyes will be on the dryline located near Abilene to Wichita Falls. A few severe thunderstorms will fire along the dryline well west of the DFW area this evening. These storms will move east toward the Metroplex after 10p, but weaken as they do so. We expect the best chance of rain and storms to arrive during the day tomorrow as a cold front moves into our area. Some of the storms could be severe Tuesday with quarter size hail and up to 60 mph winds. Rain should end west to east by Tuesday night. More today at 4p on CBS11.

2:30 pm -  More storms capable of producing quarter size hail & 50 mph winds in Hopkins & Rains counties as well now.


2:15pm - A SEVERE T'STORM WATCH is still in effect for eastern parts of North Texas until 7p...does not include the Metroplex.  Strong storms continue from Canton to Sulphur Springs with wind gusts close to 50 mph possible, along with quarter size hail in the stronger storms.  These storms are moving north around 25 mph.  They should stay to the east of the Metroplex this afternoon.  But storms will be firing off to the west of Fort Worth later this evening along the dryline and moving into toward Metroplex after 10pm.
