A round of severe weather, including an isolated tornado, is possible late Sunday in the Dallas area.

The severe prospects for Dallas are part of a wider threat from Texas to Illinois and Michigan.

Any storms from Sunday afternoon through evening can turn severe.

"A 'blue northern' is coming to Dallas Sunday. Ahead of the front, storms may be severe producing damaging wind gusts and hail. Temperatures will drop almost 20 degrees behind the front," Severe Weather Expert Henry Margusity said.

It will stay in the low 70s through the end of the week. There is a chance of showers Thursday night.
