Saved By Sunset – Loss of Daytime Heating Leads to Severe Weather “Non-Event”

Earlier today, it looked as though Hunt County would be in the throes of a major severe weather event.

However, as 6:00 drew closer, the sun had started to set in the western sky; and, with that, temperatures started to cool down rapidly.

By the time the squall line arrived in Hunt County at around 7:00 p.m., the storms had died down to non-severe levels.  In other words, Hunt County had dodged the bullet.

Other areas in the region, however, weren’t so lucky.

In Fort Worth, the roof of an office building in the vicinity of Meachem Boulevard and Sylvan Avenue was ripped to shreds by what appeared to be an EF0 tornado.  Meanwhile, 28th Street, also in Fort Worth, was littered with debris from the storm.

Majors Field only recorded 0.01 inches of rain for the day as of 7:50 p.m. this evening.

A tornado watch, which went into effect at 12:00 noon and included Hunt County, was allowed to expire at 8:00 p.m.
