Thunderstorms moved through North Texas Tuesday evening, bringing strong wind gusts, sheets of rain and thousands of lightning strikes.

Emergency management officials in Grayson County reported power lines down and some roof damage near Sherman. The county saw at least one tornado, but Emergency Operations officials said three tornadoes were possible.

Overnight, Oncor reported more than 28,000 customers were without power across North Texas.

NBC 5 scattered crews across the area to cover severe weather as it hit North Texas.

Wind gusts were reported at 70 mph while the line of storms moved through parts of the region late Tuesday.  A peak wind gust of 90 mph was recorded in Grayson County, where a tornado may have developed.

A Tornado Watch issued for much of North Texas was allowed to expire at midnight.

"This is a particularly dangerous situation," the Storm Prediction Center alerted in red type in an afternoon advisory Tuesday afternoon. It uses such language on only about 7 percent of its tornado watches.

Severe thunderstorms are expected in North Texas again Friday evening and early Saturday.

NBC Meteorologist Rick Mitchell updates the forecast for Tuesday, April 26, 2016.
