Episode Narrative Three rounds of thunderstorms affected north Texas with 10 tornadoes confirmed. The atmosphere was highly unstable on this day and a High Risk was issued by the Storm Prediction Center for the northwestern counties of north Texas while a Moderate Risk covered much of the rest of north Texas. A strong upper level disturbance approaching from the west interacted with a dryline across the western portions of north Texas, and the first round of storms began to develop around 330 pm in the western counties. The first two rounds of storms remained along and north of Interstate 20 but the third round of storms later that night moved through most of the region as a line of storms. The most significant tornado occurred in the western limits of the city of Denton where EF-2 damage occurred. An EF-1 tornado also occurred in the city of Irving in Dallas County, and softball sized hail fell in the northern portions of the Metroplex. In the city of Dallas, one person died from electrocution after going outside around live, downed wires after a storm had passed.
