Strong storms expected overnight

Batten down the hatches! Denton County is under a severe weather risk tonight.

All types of severe weather are expected, including embedded tornadoes within a squall line, according to weather officials.

A fast moving line of storms is expected to move across Denton County during the overnight hours. Squall lines usually bring a good threat for damaging winds because of how fast they move. Individual storms may move as fast as 50 mph as the line moves east.

Conditions will also be favorable for embedded tornadoes within the line of storms. These tornadoes are usually fast moving and relatively brief, but they can produce quite a bit of damage, weather officials said.

The hail threat is generally low with this system but some storms could produce large hail.

The squall line is expected to enter the I-35 corridor between 3 and 5 a.m. and continue to move east through the early morning hours Tuesday.

A Wind Advisory is in effect for Denton County from 6 p.m. tonight to 6 a.m. on Tuesday. Winds may gust up to 40 mph as the front rolls through tonight.
