Raging thunderstorms and hail the size of ping-pong balls battered down on Dallas according to a Fort Worth Star-Telegram article from April 23rd. In it they say:
“North Texans had a quiet Thursday on the weather front with cloudy skies and spring temperatures, but it’s going to be active on Friday.
Meteorologists at the National Weather Service in Fort Worth say North Texans could wake up Friday morning to scattered showers and thunderstorms.
And those will be increasing throughout the day on Friday as some severe storms will be possible and will bring heavy rain and damaging winds. There’s an 80 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms on Friday.”
The inclement weather potential forced several vaccine hubs to close for the day according to a Dallas Morning News article from April 23rd. In it they say:
“In Dallas County, the Potter’s House church is closed Friday but will reopen Saturday. Anyone who had appointments for Friday can go to the site tomorrow to get their shot, the city said in a tweet.
Denton Couny’s vaccine site at Texas Motor Speedway is also closed Friday. The county’s health department said in a tweet that people scheduled to be vaccinated Friday will be sent new appointment times.
Tarrant County Public Health said in a tweet that the Bob Bolen COVID-19 vaccination site closed at 1 p.m. due to the weather. People who had appointments there will be contacted to reschedule. Patients can also reschedule by calling 817-248-6299.”
The weather will hopefully improve this upcoming week so normal operations can resume.
