Severe Weather Update - DFW Metroplex Region

The above image was just taken from the Terminal Doppler Weather Radar just Southeast of Coppell, TX, to the Northwest of Dallas.  A cluster of strong to severe thunderstorms is moving East across Northern sections of Ft. Worth, toward the Northwest sections of Dallas.  The thin blue line that you see in advance of the thunderstorms is a band of strong outflow winds blowing West to East out of the thunderstorm complex.  Radar is currently estimated gusts of 60-70 mph with this activity.

During the next 15-30 minutes, very strong wind gusts of 60-70 mph will be possible from Ponder to Denton, Corinth and Argyle, Southward through Lewisville, Grapevine, Keller, Colleyville and North Richland Hills.    If this activity holds together, the threat will soon extend Eastward into much of central and northern Dallas County.

Hail up to 1 inch in diameter is also possible with this activity.

If you live along or ahead of this activity, seek immediate shelter until threatening weather passes your area.
