As the front moves through it will bring rain and storms.
As is typical in April, we get these big warm-ups which make people wonder are we looking at severe weather soon.
In addition to the severe weather threat, flooding will remain an ongoing issue.
Closer to 5pm, the squall line with damaging winds will move in from southern IL. Timing with the storm chances in DFW is 1 p.m. - 4 p.m. Colder air behind the storm could change the rain to snow Wednesday morning. All counties and parishes along and south of Interstate-30 are in the "slight risk" zone for strong/severe storms, meaning scattered severe weather reports are possible, including isolated intense storms. We will continue to tweak the forecast, and will have updates around the clock for you.
It'll be sunny on Wednesday, but much cooler with high temperatures into the mid to upper 50s.
