A Stormy Weekend & New Radar Tool

February 15, 2008 at 11:35 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | 1 Comment

I will repeat again that I expect no winter weather problems this weekend here in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Indeed, most all of north Texas will remain above freezing. The only exception might be the far northwestern portions of our viewing area. There is a chance of some light freezing drizzle this evening from Breckenridge to Graham, Olney, Archer City and Wichita Falls.

The big problem for us will be the threat of heavy rain and thunderstorms. Friday evening, we will just see fog and some drizzly light rain. But after midnight, storms will be increasing. And we could receive several inches of rain between midnight and sundown on Saturday. The strongest storms will probably be mid-day Saturday. In fact, some of these storms could become severe, producing hail and damaging wind gusts. The greatest severe weather threat. though, will be southeast of Dallas. There is even a possibility of a few tornadoes in those areas, mainly southeast of Waco, Athens and Tyler.

But you now have available a new tool to keep up with theses developing storms. We have added a new interactive radar tool on our website at:

With that tool, you can zoom in to your county of interest, and see the detailed display of NEXRAD radar, for any location in the entire country.

We already have a Live feed of our StormTrack5 Radar on our web page. And that is the best way to see where storms are located right now. Our new tool gives you access to more detailed views of your own area. It’s the best of both worlds.

  1. Is there a record of the lighting strikes that took place Feb 15th/16th during a thunderstorm that came through N Richland Hills ? I vaguely remember seeing one on one of the telecasts.

    I need this as proof in a legal matter regarding storm damage. Thanks in advance.
