Severe Thunderstorm Watch expires for Denton County

The National Weather Service issued a Severe Thunderstorm Watch for Denton and Collin counties on Thursday night, but at least half of the county stayed quiet.

The weather service was monitoring severe weather threats to the northwest of Denton County, and at 8:13 p.m., it extended the Severe Thunderstorm Watch to include Denton and Collin counties for the rest of Thursday night.

Conditions were favorable for severe weather, including large hail and damaging wind gusts up to 70 mph.

Portions of northern Denton County were under a Severe Thunderstorm Warning around 10 p.m., but the storms missed the rest of the county entirely and the storm watch was allowed to expire.
