Friday tornadoes

3 tornadoes have been confirmed so far in North Texas from Friday's severe weather:

  • EF-3 in Lamar County
  • EF-2 in Henderson County (around Athens)
  • EF-2 Near Sulphur Springs in Hopkins County

These are the only tornadoes confirmed as of Sunday morning, but that number could increase over the coming days.

Storm surveys are underway to determine the exact strength, path length, number of tornadoes, etc. The final details and information will not be known for at least several days.

So far, the only severe weather reported in the Dallas-Fort Worth area was wind damage and a few instances of quarter size hail.

This week

Clouds and rain chances return Monday, but severe storms are very unlikely.

Clouds will be around to start the day with some patchy drizzle possible out of those clouds. Spotty to scattered showers or storms are possible through the day Monday, but not everyone will see actual rain.

Election Day (Tuesday) looks dry, warm, and breezy with highs around 80°.

Late week, another cold front arrives, bringing much cooler weather back to North Texas for Friday into the weekend. Rain chances look pretty minimal with that front, but there might be some isolated showers or storms Thursday night.

Temps next weekend look to be potentially some of the coolest we've seen all fall.
