This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for North and Central Texas.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

Scattered thunderstorms are expected today along and east of the
Interstate 35 corridor. A few storms may become strong to marginally
severe, but widespread severe weather is not expected. Damaging winds
and hail will be the main hazards with any strong or severe storms. To
the west of the Interstate 35 corridor, a few thunderstorms may also
occur. Thunderstorm coverage is expected to decrease in the evening
hours, but low chances for thunderstorms will continue tonight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday.

There is a chance of thunderstorms on Saturday. A cap should limit
the extent of storms, but with considerable instability, any storms
that are able to develop Saturday afternoon could quickly become
severe with large hail and damaging winds.

More widespread thunderstorms are expected Saturday night as a cold
front sweeps through the region. The linear complex of storms that
accompanies the front will primarily pose a wind threat, but any
discrete cells will be capable of large hail and tornadoes,
particularly if they precede the line. A brief tornado could also
occur within the line, but since these nocturnal spin-ups are often
obscured by rain, they would be difficult for spotters to observe.
The severe threat will diminish during the early morning hours Sunday
as the line weakens across Central and East Texas. The storm chances
will come to an end on Sunday.


Very limited spotter activation may be requested this afternoon along
and east of Interstate 35 corridor.
