The thunderstorm watch for Hopkins county has been extended until 4 a.m. Thursday morning.
Earlier this evening, The National Weather Service had issued a severe thunderstorm watch in effect until midnight Wednesday night for 27 counties in North Central Texas. Hopkins County and surrounding counties are included in the watch area.
At the time of the watch issued, radar showed a line of thunderstorms stretching from Forestburg, Texas, north of Decatur, into Oklahoma as a cold front makes its way across the area. Currently, that line of thunderstorms is nearing Hunt County as it passes through Collin County. Large hail resulted in Tarrant and Collin Counties as a result of the storm line. The intensity of the storms did seem to be decreasing as the storms moved east.
A thunderstorm watch means that conditions are present to create storms with damaging wind, hail, and heavy rain. It does not mean that such storms are present at this time.
KSST will monitor radar and broadcast any severe weather in the area.
