DFW Weather: North Texas Met With Strong Storms, Hail On Saturday

Normally, all it could take is a low risk and a few storms could become severe. Expect strong north winds Saturday afternoon into Sunday morning.

A series of tornadoes on Palm Sunday in 1994 killed 40 people in Georgia and Alabama, including 20 people at a church. Be sure to secure all loose items.

The most significant risk of severe weather is expected Saturday, but there's still considerable potential Sunday.

TODAY: Rain and thunderstorms likely in the morning. Even outside of thunderstorms winds will gust past 40 miles per hour tomorrow, so because of that a Wind Advisory has been issued for most of the WYMT coverage area. While a few showers or storms are possible, the better chance will be in the evening.

Sunday Night: Mostly clear, with a low around 44.

We will see another sunny and dry stretch for midweek with temperatures climbing from the upper 60s on Tuesday to the upper 70s by Thursday.

MONDAY: Rain/TStorms possible. High: 60s.

Wednesday: Partly cloudy and pleasant with temperatures in the middle 70s. It'll be pretty nice with highs around 70 Monday and near 80 Tuesday. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 60.

In East Texas, authorities say two children were killed when high winds toppled a tree onto the back of the family auto while it was in motion.

Suspected tornadoes also were reported overnight in various parts of Alabama, including Highland Lakes, Greystone and American Village in Shelby County and lake Purdy at Grants in Jefferson County. In addition to the severe threat, local flash flooding issues may develop.
