Severe thunderstorms will develop Saturday evening in West Texas. A few thunderstorms will produce tornadoes, but the main threat should evolve into damaging winds and large hail overnight.

The line of thunderstorms will erupt Saturday evening in West Texas and move eastward overnight. The thunderstorms early-on will be capable of producing tornadoes. However, the characteristics of the thunderstorms will change enough to promote mainly damaging winds and large hail through the night.

These thunderstorms will move toward the I-35 corridor from Oklahoma City to Dallas/Ft. Worth Easter morning, which will disrupt sunrise services and Easter egg hunts.

Thunderstorms will strengthen once again Sunday afternoon throughout East Texas and could become severe. If all the ingredients can come together, then tornadoes will be possible. These potentially dangerous thunderstorms will move eastward into Louisiana Sunday night.

Have your cell phone charged and handy to access forecasting services and radar. This is especially important if you are at Easter sunrise services or egg hunts, away from other media outlets.
