This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for North and Central Texas.

.DAY ONE...Late This Afternoon and Tonight.

Scattered thunderstorms are expected to develop late this afternoon,
then continue into the early evening mainly along and west of a
Gainesville to Weatherford to Goldthwaite line. A brief reprieve may
occur this evening, before a line of strong to severe storms moves
readily west to east across the region overnight.

Initial storms that develop across the west late today have the
potential to be discrete and contain all modes of severe weather,
including a tornado threat near a retreating warm front between
Interstate 20 and the Red River. These storms will track north-
northeast. The line of strong to severe storms overnight will pose
primarily a damaging wind threat, although severe hail and an
isolated tornado remain possible. In addition, there will be a threat
for localized instances of flash flooding, especially for locales
that receive training of storm cells with heavy rainfall associated
with the slow-moving, upper level low.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday.

Thunderstorm chances will linger on Wednesday mostly along and east
of Interstate 35. The threat for severe storms will continue with a
risk for damaging winds and perhaps an isolated tornado. A low chance
for thunderstorms continues across this area Wednesday night, as the
core of the upper low moves across the Southern Plains. These storms
will pose a risk for marginally severe hail with the strongest

Another storm system will bring increasing chances for thunderstorms
to the region Saturday through Monday, with the highest coverage
Sunday and Sunday night. Strong to severe storms will once again be
possible, though many details remain uncertain regarding system and
environmental evolution.

Spotter activation is likely after 4 pm this afternoon, continuing
into the early evening hours roughly west of a Gainesville to
Weatherford to Goldthwaite line, and then again across all of North
and Central Texas overnight.
