Strong To Severe Storms Possible Late This Afternoon Into Tonight

Posted: Updated:

A beautiful sunrise to start the weekend... but don't get used to Mother Nature's good side.

This morning starts us off with a few clouds and temperatures in the mid 70s just in time for the Red River Rivalry kick-off at 11 a.m. Winds will be breezy out of the south at 10-20 mph with gusts to 30 mph possible.

The afternoon brings above-average temperatures with a high of 84° with lingering clouds but a few peeks of sunshine. Winds will continue to be strong all through the afternoon. The morning should remain dry for the game, but just as fans are exiting Cotton Bowl Stadium, storms will begin to fire to the west. Fans that decide to remain at the fair until 6 p.m. could encounter some strong to severe weather as a line of storms that extends from central Oklahoma through DFW pushes through the region.

The main threat with these storms will be winds in excess of 60mph and large hail. An isolated tornado cannot be ruled out either.

If you are caught outside in the path of these storms, especially if you are at the fair, take shelter in a permanent structure away from windows.
