Severe storms move east of the DFW Metroplex with no active tornado warnings. Strong winds and heavy rain in the mix for eastern parts of North Texas.
11pm Update - Storms are done and have moved east of DFW. No active tornado warnings for anywhere in North Texas right now either. If you haven't seen storms yet (eastern NTX), strong winds, heavy rain, and lightning headed your way. #wfaaweather pic.twitter.com/xRM7hu7liw — Kyle Roberts (@KyleWeather) October 11, 2021
