A strong jet stream will lead to strong to severe storms across the Lone Star State today and tonight.  Large hail, damaging wind gusts and tornadoes will all be possible.  Here is the latest forecast.

Severe Outlook

Most of western Texas and southwest Oklahoma is under a risk for severe storms today.  The timing could be interesting with a chance for severe weather overnight into Wednesday morning.

Severe Risks

The tornado threat will be more for North-Central Texas, but the hail and wind risk will cover a large portion of the State and even impact southwest Oklahoma.


The latest forecast shows the storms firing up this afternoon and evening. Based on the latest timing, strong to severe storms could impact the I-35 corridor from Dallas to Austin during the overnight. You will definitely want a way to get alerts while you’re sleeping.
