A storm system moved across North Texas Thursday morning, bringing a cold front and some much-needed rain to the area.

The severe threat greatly diminished as the storms moved from the western counties into the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Thursday's high occurred this morning.

As of mid-morning, the rain ended and was replaced by gusty north winds and dropping temperatures with wind chills into the 20s and 30s.

There are more chances for rain next week and winter weather remains a possibility so stay tuned to NBC 5 for the latest weather updates.

In other areas of the country, the same storm system will bring the risk of tornadoes Thursday. The areas at risk include large parts of Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee and Kentucky.

Some of the storms could become “supercellular and capable of producing damaging wind gusts and tornadoes," the Storm Prediction Center said. Stronger heating of the atmosphere in some areas will lead to a greater tornado threat.

Wintry weather is expected further north. The overall storm system has the potential to bring “a swath of disruptive snow and freezing rain to extend from northern Oklahoma to southern Michigan on Thursday,” the National Weather Service warned.
