This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for North and Central Texas.

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight.
Isolated thunderstorms are possible this afternoon along and east of
a Cameron to Bonham line this afternoon. Brief heavy rain and cloud
to ground lightning may accompany these storms.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday.
Thunderstorm chances will return to the region Thursday night as a
slow moving cold front approaches from the north and a dryline slides
towards the east. Widespread severe weather is unlikely late
Thursday into Friday morning with the main thunderstorm hazards being
cloud to ground lightning. A few of the stronger storms may contain
gusty winds, small hail and heavy rain.

The more appreciable threat for thunderstorms, some severe, will be
late Friday afternoon and into Saturday. The best chances for severe
thunderstorms initially will be during the late afternoon to early
evening hours on Friday north of the I-20 corridor. The most likely
hazards will be damaging winds and large hail. Through the evening
hours on Friday and into the overnight hours, strong to severe storms
will likely congeal into a squall line with an attendant risk for
damaging winds and perhaps large hail. This squall line is expected
to move near and south of the interstate 20 corridor by Saturday
morning. Pockets of heavy rain will also be possible.

On Saturday morning, strong to potentially severe storms capable of
strong winds and hail may continue across a good portion of North and
Central TX. In addition to the wind and hail potential, heavy rain
will also be possible. Thunderstorm chances should diminish by noon
on Saturday.

Spotter activation is not expected at this time.
