This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for North and Central Texas.

.DAY ONE...Tonight.
There is an elevated threat for wildfires through sunset, primarily
along and west of a line from Comanche to Glen Rose to Nocona due to
windy and dry conditions.

Windy conditions will continue across the western two thirds of the
region through the evening with south winds in the 20 to 30 mph range
along with gusts to 40 mph.

Thunderstorms will 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. Any storm that
does develop overnight may contain gusty winds and cloud to ground

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday.
Thunderstorms will spread from west to east through the morning
Friday. As the storms move east of the Interstate 35 corridor early
Friday afternoon they may increase in intensity as they encounter
unstable air. Some strong to severe storms will be possible with
strong winds and large hail the primary hazards. All storms will move
into East Texas Friday evening.

The fire threat may reach critical levels Friday afternoon west of a
line from Gainesville to Granbury to Comanche where windy and dry
conditions are expected.

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. The gusty winds associated with this system may re-aggravate
fire weather concerns Sunday afternoon.

The active springlike pattern will persist, and thunderstorm chances
will return on Tuesday and increase on Wednesday as the next system

Spotter activation is not expected at this time.
