For the third time in the past two weeks, Hunt County and North Texas are bracing for the potential for severe weather.

Large hail and damaging winds are the primary threat associated with the thunderstorms which forecasters are predicting could cross the region this afternoon and tonight.

The National Weather Service issued a hazardous weather outlook Monday evening, warning of the potential for severe weather, primarily between 1 p.m. today and 1 a.m. Wednesday, with the northern two-thirds of North Texas under the greatest risk for storms which may also include isolated tornadoes.

North Texas felt the brunt of a line of severe thunderstorms which passed through April 13. No injuries were reported in the immediate area from the storms which spawned four twisters — including a tornado which touched down south of Royse City near the Hunt/Rockwall County line, along with several funnel clouds.

Hunt County was spared any severe weather from another line of storms which visited the night of April 17. While counties to the west reported damage from the storms, a good soaking was all which was recorded locally.

Majors Field Municipal Airport in Greenville, the official monitoring site for Hunt County used by the National Weather Service, has already recorded 2.88 inches of rain for the month, making it the wettest April since 2002.
