THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR NORTH AND CENTRAL TEXAS.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.
ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE REGIONWIDE TODAY.
ALTHOUGH THE SHEAR WILL BE WEAK...SUFFICIENT INSTABILITY MAY
ALLOW ONE OR TWO STORMS TO BECOME SEVERE THIS AFTERNOON AND
EVENING. DAMAGING WIND AND HAIL WOULD BE THE PRIMARY
THREATS...ALONG WITH HEAVY RAINFALL WHICH MAY CAUSE LOCALIZED
FLOODING. IF SEVERE STORMS ARE ABLE TO FORM WEST OF A BOWIE
TO LAMPASAS LINE THIS AFTERNOON...A LOW TORNADO THREAT MAY LINGER
INTO THE EVENING HOURS.

A WEST TEXAS DRYLINE IS EXPECTED TO BE THE FOCUS FOR THUNDERSTORM
DEVELOPMENT AGAIN TODAY. THIS ACTIVITY MAY CONGEAL INTO A LINEAR
COMPLEX...WHICH COULD POSE A WIND THREAT TO AREAS AS FAR EAST AS
THE I-35 CORRIDOR AFTER MIDNIGHT.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY.
EVEN IF SUNSHINE IS LIMITED AGAIN ON MONDAY...THERE WILL BE AMPLE
INSTABILITY FOR ANY THUNDERSTORMS THAT ARE ABLE TO DEVELOP. ANY
STORMS WILL BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING LARGE HAIL AND DAMAGING WIND.

DESPITE CONSIDERABLE INSTABILITY ON TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY...A
STRONG CAPPING INVERSION SHOULD PREVENT THE DAYTIME INITIATION OF
THUNDERSTORMS. BUT AS A STORM SYSTEM APPROACHES LATE IN THE
WEEK...HELPING TO WEAKEN THE CAP...THUNDERSTORM CHANCES WILL
RETURN THURSDAY THROUGH SATURDAY. THE ATMOSPHERE WILL REMAIN
UNSTABLE...AND WITH INCREASING VERTICAL WIND SHEAR...SEVERE STORMS
WILL BE POSSIBLE THROUGH THE PERIOD. LARGE HAIL AND DAMAGING WIND
WILL BE THE PRIMARY THREATS...BUT TORNADIC STORMS WILL ALSO BE
POSSIBLE.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
LIMITED SPOTTER ACTIVATION MAY BE REQUESTED TODAY...PARTICULARLY
THIS EVENING IN AREAS WEST OF THE I-35 CORRIDOR.
