Strong wind gusts and large hail are the main threats, but tornados are possible as well. Storm chances for the Wichita Falls area and surrounding central portions of Texoma have increased since Thursday morning.

The counties under the Tornado Watch: Archer, Baylor, Childress, Clay, Cottle, Cotton, Foard, Hardeman, Harmon, Jackson, Jefferson, King, Knox, Montague, Stephens, Tillman, Wichita and Wilbarger.
