Tornado Watch issued for North Texas until 2 a.m.

A Tornado Watch has been issued for the majority of North Texas until 2 a.m.

The majority of the metroplex and parts east are under an enhanced risk of severe weather throughout the night.

The approaching front is bringing rain and very strong winds up to North Texas. There will be an 80% chance of seeing rain Monday.

The main threat will be damaging wind gusts up to 60-75 miles per hour. Some may see some hail up to quarter-sized. The threat for tornadoes is low but cannot be ruled out.

The most active period for the metroplex and surrounding area will be between 8 p.m. to as late as 1 a.m. 

As we head into midnight, the metroplex will see storms ending as they head east.

Far eastern and southeastern areas will see storms between 10 p.m. and 2 a.m.


The rest of the week will be calm. Tuesday will be a very windy and warm day with temperatures staying in the high 80s. Another cold front will come early Wednesday morning that will drop temperatures into the 60s.
