DALLAS (AP) - The National Weather Service has issued a tornado watch for Central and North Texas.
The advisory Tuesday by the weather service could be expanded to include East Texas as a storm system moves east across the state. Severe thunderstorms are anticipated in some areas.
The NWS has issued the tornado watch until 7 Tuesday evening.
A layer of warm air over the area had limited storm development in much of North Texas over the past two days. That layer is expected to dissipate Tuesday, allowing storms and isolated tornadoes to develop.
Storms have continued to rage along the edges of the warm-air cap over the region, though. The Texas Department of Public Safety reported a Monday tornado in Blanket, a town of about 400 residents some 100 miles southwest of Fort Worth.
