Storm spotters have reported at least three tornadoes in the counties just north and east of Dallas.

Spotters reported twisters near Rockwall, Greenville and Canton to the National Weather Service between 2:30 p.m. and 4 p.m. Wednesday. Funnel clouds that didn't reach the ground also were reported. All of them dispersed quickly and there were no reports of damage or injuries.

The storms were forming hundreds of miles ahead of a cold front.

The weather service said in a statement that strong low-level instability has allowed some of the thunderstorms to become severe and that it has received numerous reports of wind damage, hail and a few tornadoes.
