    Scattered showers and thunderstorms that pushed through the Metroplex Tuesday morning have moved east.

    A few stronger storms may hang on into the afternoon hours farther east. These storms could produce gusty winds to 40 or 50 mph as they move into East Texas. Today's severe risk is to the east.

    The DFW area picked up less than 0.20" of rain this morning as the line moved through. The afternoon hours are expected to be dry. In fact, the next several days we look to be entering a dry pattern.

    Before the Storm
    Weather Safety

    Stay Safe During a Hail Storm
     
    At Home?
    • Head indoors immediately
    • If time allows, close all drapes, blinds or shades to prevent broken glass from entering your home.
    • Stay away from windows and skylights (any exterior glass) and head to a safe location inside your home, ideally only with interior walls.
    Outdoors?
    • Cover your head and seek shelter indoors immediately.
    • If you are trapped outside, get to a low-lying area and try to protect your head. Use clothing if it's all you have.
    Driving?
    • Stay inside your vehicle.
    • Slow down or pull over and stop at a safe location. DO NOT stop under a highway overpass. You may be protecting your vehicle, but you could be forcing other people to stop behind you.
    • Turn your back to windows or cover yourself with a blanket, coat or spare clothing to protect yourself from breaking glass.
    • If you have a sunroof, try to find something to protect your head.
