This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for North and Central Texas.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.
With reduced humidity and breezy conditions returning, there is an
elevated threat for wildfires this afternoon, primarily along and
west of a line from Comanche to Glen Rose to Nocona.

Thunderstorms may approach from the west late tonight, potentially
reaching the I-35 corridor before daybreak. However, with a strong
cap remaining in place, severe storms are unlikely to occur.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday.
Thunderstorms may be ongoing Friday morning. Their extent will affect
the ability of the atmosphere to recover sufficiently for additional
storm development Friday afternoon. Thunderstorms late in the day
will have the potential to become strong or severe with strong winds
and large hail the primary hazards. The most favored area for intense
convection Friday afternoon and evening will be east of the I-35

A fire weather watch is in effect for Friday in those areas generally
along and west of a line from Ranger to Mineral Wells to Nocona.
Strong gusty winds and relative humidity values falling below 20
percent will create extreme fire weather conditions. A red flag
warning will likely be needed and may include additional areas not
currently in the fire weather watch.

The next chance for thunderstorms will be Sunday afternoon through
Sunday night. Some of these storms could become severe. At this
time, the main hazards appear to be damaging straight-line winds and
large hail. All of this activity will move east of the area Monday
morning. The gusty winds associated with this system may re-aggravate
fire weather concerns Sunday afternoon.

The active springlike pattern will persist, and thunderstorms may
return as early as Tuesday. Thunderstorm chances will increase on
Wednesday as the next system approaches.

Spotter activation is not expected at this time.
