At about 2:00pm, a tornado watch was issued for all of North TX.

By 2:30pm, severe storms were rapidly developing, from Azle to Granbury.  The two strongest storms developed over Eagle Mountain Lake and over Granbury.

Quickly, the National Weather Service issued severe thunderstorm warnings, and the storms began to show signs of rotation on Stormtrack 5 radar.  At 3:02, the first tornado warning was issued for the Granbury storm, as it moved into NW Johnson County.

As the rotation strengthened, a small tornado occured near Godley, damaging a patio, overturning a trailer and damaging a shed.  The rotating thunderstorm continued to prompt tornado warnings all the way to the Cedar Hill/DeSoto area.

The Eagle Mountain storm moved toward Lake Lewisville, and continued to strengthen.  As it neared Lake Dallas, a tornado warning was issued for it.  Numerous reports of large hail and a few funnel clouds were spotted, but no tornadoes were reported.
