DALLAS (TIP): A line of thunderstorms that darkened 
skies in Dallas-Fort Worth on Thursday, June 7 evening brought rain and 
gusty winds to some areas before petering out.

Denton County and parts of Collin County were hit hardest by the 
storms that moved south into the region from the Red River, KXAS-TV 
(NBC5) meteorologist Rick Mitchell said.

The storms were already weakening as they made it into Dallas County,
 and by 7:15 p.m. they had been reduced to a small shower in the 
southwest part of the county, Mitchell said.

A collection of non-severe showers and storms off to the northeast was also in the process of dying out, he said.

Some areas saw strong winds including Denton Enterprise Airport, 
which recorded a 68 mph gust, according to the National Weather Service.

The thunderstorms knocked out power to about 12,500 Oncor customers 
in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, and the agency was in the process of 
restoring service Thursday night, spokeswoman Connie Piloto said.

Though the heaviest rainfall was about an inch, most areas saw less — if any at all.

DFW International Airport recorded a quarter of an inch, and Grand Prairie and Irving got about half an inch, Mitchell said.

Some flight delays and cancellations were also reported at DFW Airport.

The impending weather was enough to cancel the final practice of the 
NASCAR Camping World Truck Series at the Texas Motor Speedway and delay 
the start of the Texas Rangers game.

There were also some reports of small hail, but “none of it was that 
scary stuff,” Mitchell said, referring to Wednesday’s hailstorm that 
caused thousands of dollars in damage.

At least one tree was damaged by wind in Coppell, which also saw significant hail damage early Wednesday.

A house fire was reported Thursday in Sanger that may have been caused by a lightning strike, Mitchell said.

The weekend is shaping up to be dry with highs expected in the mid-90s.


“The last few days we’ve had these waves of showers and storms that 
most of us have not had but have been affecting parts of North Texas,” 
Mitchell said. “But I think that kind of winds down tomorrow.”
