This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for North and Central Texas.

.DAY ONE...This Evening and Tonight.
A Heat Advisory is in effect along and east of the Interstate 35
corridor from Dallas/Fort Worth to Temple/Killeen through this
evening. Dangerous heat index values of 105 to 108 degrees will
continue through 6PM.

Scattered thunderstorms will continue along a weak frontal boundary
stalled across North Texas. Some thunderstorms may become severe with
mainly a damaging wind threat. Although uncommon for this time of
year, a tornado cannot be ruled out. The tornado threat should be
confined to thunderstorms very near the frontal boundary.

Later this evening, thunderstorms should increase in coverage along
and north of Interstate 20, possibly forming into a complex or two
that would move east across North Texas. Locally heavy rainfall and
flash flooding will be the main threats during the overnight hours. A
Flash Flood Watch is in effect for parts of North and Northeast

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday.
Thunderstorm chances will continue Sunday through Tuesday, mainly
north of a line from Comanche to Palestine. The better rain chances
will continue to be north of Interstate 20. Coverage of storms will
be isolated to scattered and severe weather is not expected.

Heat index values of 100 to 108 degrees will be common each
afternoon through next week.

Spotter activation may be requested this evening across North Texas.
Timely reports of flash flooding are also appreciated.
