Severe Hail Storm Hits North Texas on Memorial Day

Severe storms swept through North Texas on Memorial Day, bringing significant hail to the Metroplex and triggering multiple weather warnings. The National Weather Service issued a Severe Thunderstorm Watch for most of the region until 10 p.m., with several Severe Thunderstorm Warnings throughout the night.

Hail was reported across various parts of North Texas, including Dallas, where the city activated its siren system due to the large hailstones. The storms caused disruptions on highways, with Richie Roberson reporting that vehicles blocked Interstate 35E in Dallas as drivers sought shelter under overpasses to avoid the damaging hail.

As the storms move out, North Texas is set to experience a pattern change. Tuesday will bring scattered showers and storms throughout the day, with the potential for a stronger storm in the evening. The region is bracing for soggy weather, with 3 to 5 inches of rain expected over the week.

While the persistent rain may cause some inconvenience, it also brings a silver lining: cooler temperatures. The rainfall is anticipated to drop the temperatures, providing some relief from the typical North Texas heat.

Residents are advised to stay updated with local weather reports and exercise caution when driving in stormy conditions. The heavy rain may lead to localized flooding, so it’s important to be prepared and stay safe.
