Some of the most active weather in North Texas happens during the months of March, April and May. That is when the frequency of tornadoes is at its highest.

As we head into the month of June, the weather pattern starts to shift. The jet stream lifts north, the chance for rain diminishes in North Texas and the severe weather threat shifts north.

One season ends, another begins: June 1 is the start of hurricane season.

The National Weather Service confirmed late Saturday that an EF-0 tornado was responsible for damaging several Mesquite homes.

While we don’t get hit directly by tropical storms or hurricanes, the remnants of storms entering the Gulf of Mexico have been known to move into North Texas, dumping heavy rain during the summer months.

Summer is fast approaching. Does that mean 100-degree temperature readings in our near future? Probably not.

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.
