Storms with high winds, reduced tornado risk expected in North Texas overnight


It will be a stormy night in northern Texas.

A front is expected to move overnight and could bring extreme weather conditions. Thunderstorms are expected to be brief but could be destructive.

According to the FOX 4 Weather team, areas west of Interstate 35 will be affected first, with the busiest time being from 11 p.m. to 2 a.m.

The storms will likely reach the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex between 1 a.m. and 5 a.m. and east of I-35 between 3 a.m. and 7 a.m.

The biggest threat will be damaging wind gusts between 55 and 65 miles per hour. There could be stronger gusts of wind in some areas.

A few spin-up tornadoes are also possible, especially in areas northwest of the metroplex. Anything that forms will likely be short-lived, unlike the devastating tornadoes that hit North Texas a week ago.

Hail is possible, but it will probably be smaller in size.

Cooler air will follow for highs in the low 70s Wednesday and Thursday.
