Friday’s view from the St. Patrick Catholic School rooftop cameras

The weather radar shows severe storms with hail and possible tornadoes are headed for North Texas this afternoon, so Richardson ISD has canceled all after-school activities for the day. That includes the wrestling match at LHHS against Highland Park, the RISD Ice Bowl soccer tournament and the big basketball game against state champion Duncanville, among other festivities. RISD classes will dismiss at the usual times. The basketball game has been rescheduled for 1 p.m. Saturday.

Some private schools in the neighborhood have opted to release students early, including St. Patrick Catholic School, which will dismiss at 1 p.m.

Stay tuned to weather stations to remain safe this afternoon and evening.
