North Texas is under a tornado watch until 8 p.m.

As of 3 p.m., there are a couple of severe thunderstorms in the area, with the strongest one producing ping pong-sized hail near Possum Kingdom Lake.
The hail core is moving out of Mineral Wells, and the storm is expected to move eastward, impacting a good portion of Tarrant County.
The potential for golf ball-sized hail is still possible within this thunderstorm.
