THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR NORTH AND CENTRAL TEXAS.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.
THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE REGIONWIDE TODAY. ALTHOUGH THE
SHEAR WILL BE WEAK...INCREASING INSTABILITY MAY ALLOW FOR A FEW
SEVERE STORMS. DAMAGING WIND AND LARGE HAIL WOULD BE THE PRIMARY
THREATS.

A WEST TEXAS DRYLINE IS EXPECTED TO BE THE FOCUS FOR THUNDERSTORM
DEVELOPMENT AGAIN TODAY. A TORNADIC THREAT MAY LINGER INTO THE
EVENING HOURS AS THESE STORMS ENTER WESTERN PORTIONS OF NORTH
TEXAS. 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.
