Dallas Is on a Tornado Watch for the First Time in 2015

As of 2:10 p.m., it's officially springtime in North Texas. The National Weather Service has issued its first 2015 tornado watch for Dallas County.

As every wannabe Delkus in your office is about to tell you, a tornado watch merely means that current conditions are favorable for a twister. A tornado warning means a tornado's been spotted on the ground or on radar in a given area. You'll know that an actual tornado has touched down when you see a six pack of 7-11 wings whiz past.

The tornado watch is currently set to end at 10 p.m.. Damaging hail and wind gusts up to 75 mph are also possible, according to the local weatherati.
