Storms approaching?

— It has felt a lot more like spring than fall the past few days, and North Texas could be in for some springtime severe weather later today and early Sunday morning.

The National Weather Service Friday was calling for the possibility of severe thunderstorms across portions of the region, starting this afternoon, as an upper level trough progresses eastward through the Central and Southern Plains, and a Pacific cold front pushes southeastward into the area.

The storms which do appear are expected to carry the potential of damaging downburst winds, large hail and isolated tornadoes.

The best chances of severe weather in Hunt County are expected after 1 a.m. Sunday.

There may also be an increased fire danger in the area today, as winds could gust out of the south as high as 30 mph this afternoon and tonight.

Hunt County is not currently under a ban on outdoor burning, but there are rules which are in place for a controlled burn.

 The burning of household trash is only permissible during daylight hours and the wind speed cannot be greater than 23 mph. Natural materials, such as brush and limbs can be burned, but not treated or painted lumber.

No prohibited material — including but not limited to: rubber, plastics, wire, insulation and furniture — can be burned, and a responsible person must be present during active burning.
