The tornado watch issued at noon today set to 8 p.m. had been extended until 11 p.m. Saturday night but at 9:50 p.m., the National Weather Service cancelled the watch.
Severe thunderstorms moved through Van Zandt, Rains, Hopkins, and Red River counties earlier today produced heavy rain, hail, and cloud to ground lightning. These storms also produce rotating formations and tornadoes that did not touch ground.
At 8 p.m. this evening, the cool front had not reached Hopkins County but is producing tornados in Rockwall County that are moving to the north. A new line of storms is expected in the local area as the evening continues. Now heavy rains will be the focus of any thunderstorms in the area… until something changes.
