THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR NORTH AND CENTRAL TEXAS.

.DAY ONE...THROUGH TONIGHT.

SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED THIS AFTERNOON
AND EVENING...PARTICULARLY ALONG AND SOUTHEAST OF A LINE FROM
COMANCHE...TO MINERAL WELLS...TO GAINESVILLE. STORMS WILL BE MORE
ISOLATED NORTHWEST OF THIS LINE AS A DRYLINE INVADES FROM THE
WEST. IN ADVANCE OF THE DRYLINE...A VERY UNSTABLE AND UNCAPPED
ATMOSPHERE IS SITUATED OVER NORTH AND CENTRAL TEXAS. REGARDLESS OF
COVERAGE...STRONG VERTICAL WIND SHEAR AND LIFT WILL COMBINE WITH A
VERY UNSTABLE ATMOSPHERE FOR SEVERE STORM DEVELOPMENT. ALL SEVERE
WEATHER MODES ARE EXPECTED...INCLUDING SUPERCELLS CAPABLE OF VERY
LARGE HAIL...DAMAGING WINDS...AND TORNADOES.

IN ADDITION TO THE SEVERE WEATHER HAZARDS...TRAINING OF SEVERE
STORMS MAY PRODUCE LOCALIZED RAINFALL AMOUNTS BETWEEN 1 AND 2
INCHES...WITH ISOLATED AMOUNTS OVER 3 INCHES. THE BEST POTENTIAL
FOR LOCALIZED FLASH FLOODING WILL OCCUR EAST OF A BONHAM...CORSICANA...
HEARNE LINE THROUGH TONIGHT. ONGOING RIVER AND LAKE FLOODING WILL
ALSO BE AGGRAVATED BY ANY ADDITIONAL HEAVY DOWNPOURS.

THUNDERSTORMS WILL CONGEAL INTO A BROKEN SQUALL LINE OR LINE
SEGMENTS EAST OF THE I-35 CORRIDOR LATER THIS EVENING. THE MAIN
HAZARDS SHOULD SHIFT TO DAMAGING WINDS AND HAIL...AS THE POTENTIAL
FOR SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS CONTINUES AFTER DARK. A COLD FRONT WILL
MOVE INTO THE AREA BY SATURDAY MORNING...HELPING TO GRADUALLY
DIMINISH STORM COVERAGE ACROSS ALL BUT THE FAR EAST AND SOUTHEAST
COUNTIES DURING THE PRE DAWN HOURS. THE THREAT OF FLOODING WILL
CONTINUE TONIGHT ACROSS THESE SAME AREAS.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY.

A COLD FRONT WILL EVENTUALLY OVERTAKE THE DRYLINE...AND THE
RESULTING BOUNDARY MAY LINGER FAR EASTERN AREAS OF NORTH AND
CENTRAL TEXAS SATURDAY. A LACK OF FORCING MAY LIMIT THE EXTENT AND
INTENSITY OF THE ACTIVITY...THUS SEVERE WEATHER IS NOT EXPECTED
SATURDAY.

THE NEXT STORM SYSTEM APPROACHES SUNDAY NIGHT WITH THUNDERSTORM
CHANCES RETURNING TO THE REGION SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY
NIGHT...BEFORE COMING TO AN END ON TUESDAY. THE SEVERE THREAT
DURING THIS PERIOD APPEARS LOW...BUT NOT ZERO. STRONGER STORMS
WOULD LIKELY CONTAIN SOME HAIL AND FREQUENT LIGHTNING. BRIEF HEAVY
DOWNPOURS WILL BE POSSIBLE AS WELL.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
SPOTTER ACTIVATION IS LIKELY THROUGH 10 PM...ESPECIALLY SOUTHEAST
OF A COMANCHE...TO MINERAL WELLS...TO GAINESVILLE LINE. ALL SEVERE
HAZARDS WILL BE POSSIBLE ACROSS THESE AREAS.
