From US National Weather Service Fort Worth Texas:Thunderstorm chances will increase later this morning and continue through late this evening. Thunderstorms will increase in coverage and intensity through the afternoon hours. Some thunderstorms will be severe with all modes of severe weather possible. β›ˆ Thunderstorm chances will increase later Friday morning, initially across Central Texas.β›ˆ The highest thunderstorm chances are forecast during the afternoon and evening hours, with coverage increasing across North and Central Texas throughout the day.πŸŒͺ Some storms could become severe with large hail, damaging winds, and a few tornadoes possible.β›ˆ Thunderstorms may be possible near the Red River during the late evening hours to just after midnight ahead of the cold front. Some thunderstorms may be severe, with damaging winds being the main threat.β›ˆ Localized flooding may become a concern, especially across the East Texas counties. β›ˆ Thunderstorm chances will come to an end after midnight. We continue to also monitor the potential for additional storms around the middle of next week. At this time our primary focus remains on this afternoon/evening severe weather threat, and then we will focus on refining next week’s severe weather threat. Make note that there is another possible severe weather threat during the Tuesday-Thursday timeframe and know that more details will be forthcoming this weekend and early next week.

We will likely do a special late-morning balloon launch to keep tabs on this and other local environmental parameters.β›ˆ If additional storms will form along the cold front tonight. Some guidance hints at a late evening line of storms moving east along the Red River as afternoon storms exit to the east, though how far south these storms reach remains uncertain. ...
