The above Tornado Watch continues in effect until 6pm CDT for northcentral and northeast portions of Texas.  A very intense thunderstorm is currently located between Granbury and Glen Rose, moving East/Northeast at 30 mph.  This is a very dangerous storm with a tornado likely occurring or imminent:

Additional development is possible further Southwest along the dryline into portions of central and southcentral Texas:

This would initially be to the West of I-35, but could impact the I-35 corridor in the Austin area later this evening (assuming activity developes to the West).  This region is being monitored for an additional weather watch by the SPC.
