A cold front brought several inches of rain and even hail to North Texas Monday afternoon.

Severe storms produced big hail in Cleburne as severe weather moved through the region. Up to baseball-sized hail fell in parts of Cleburne, forcing some motorists off the road to take cover.

Pea-sized hail fell in Frisco earlier in the day. There were no immediate reports of heavy damage.

Several areas experienced flash flooding. Some of the strongest storms were in Johnson County.

In Alvarado, several people tried to protect their cars from the hail by pulling under trees. But some of them got stuck in the mud.

Most of North Texas remains under a Severe Thunderstorm Watch until 11 p.m. Monday.


Storms will weaken overnight, but could still produce heavier rain for areas south and east of Dallas. By Tuesday morning, just some lingering showers are possible. As the disturbance exits, mainly just cloudy skies are expected in the evening to keep temps in the low 70s.

With lingering moisture in place, there will still be an isolated shower or two Wednesday evening, with a slightly stronger disturbance later Thursday. Mainly evening storms can be expected. Temps will be warmer late week as well and reach the low 80s.

By Easter weekend, the atmosphere looks to stabilize. So we'll keep it dry for now, although it will be warmer with temps in the mid-80s.
