According to AccuWeather analysts, a wave of severe storms, including heavy rain, isolated tornadoes, and savage gusts of wind, could reach the Dallas-Fort Worth area this Sunday evening.
The first week of October brought delightfully comfortable weather to Dallas. AccuWeather is now warning that the “warm and peaceful start to the month” is about to end. It is due to “the possibility of severe storms [becoming] a major concern in the days ahead.”

Pete had predicted the weather for Sunday, as we had expected. On Thursday night, he tweeted about the possibility of storms, which may put a damper on our weekend.
Another threat of "severe storms" is expected for Tuesday and Wednesday, according to Texas Storm Chasers. "On Tuesday and maybe Wednesday, a powerful upper-level storm system will bring another opportunity for severe thunderstorms to Texas," they stated.
