Severe Weather Threat This Easter Sunday...

Good morning and Happy Easter!

Please keep an eye to the sky today if you live in the areas shaded in brown and yellow on the above image, which is today's severe weather outlook via WeatherGuidance.

Isolated severe storms can be expected in the brown shaded areas, with scattered activity within the yellow shaded areas.

Large hail and damaging thunderstorm wind gusts will be the primary threats across the outlook areas for today.  Although storms will be more isolated over southcentral Texas, the atmosphere will be particularly unstable in this region, with hail in excess of 2 inches in diameter likely with any storms that are able to form within the black hatched area.

The most concentrated threat today will take place during the mid to late afternoon and into the evening hours, although some storms are ongoing right now along the Red River and moving toward the DFW Metroplex region with a hail and gusty wind threat this morning in that area.

If you're going to be out and about celebrating Easter today, please be sure to have a way to receive severe weather warnings for the location(s) that you'll be in, and keep an eye to the sky for any threatening conditions.

We had a beautiful Easter Sunday. I'm glad we avoided the storm so the kids could have their Easter egg hunt outside.
