This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for North and Central Texas.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

Afternoon heat indices will reach 105-108 degrees for much of the
DFW Metroplex and outlying counties north and west this afternoon
and early evening. A Heat Advisory is in effect today for these
areas. Elsewhere, heat indices will reach to between 99-104 degrees.
If planning to be outdoors for extended periods of time, remember to
wear lightweight clothing, hydrate with water or water-based fluids,
and take frequent breaks indoors or in the shade.

Isolated strong to severe thunderstorms are possibe near a surface
dryline late this afternoon and evening generally along and west of
a Bonham, to Fort Worth, to Meridian and Hamilton line. A strong cap
may prevent storms from forming, but if storms can form, then a
threat for very large hail, damaging winds, and an isolated tornado
will exist.

A complex of storms will form across southern Oklahoma along a cold
front this evening, then move southeast and weaken somewhat as they
cross the Red River Valley just after midnight and push toward the
I-20 corridor through sunrise Sunday. Despite the weakening, a few
storms may remain strong to severe and contain damaging winds and
hail overnight as the cold front moves into North Texas.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday.

Scattered thunderstorms will reform on the cold front as it continues
moving south of I-20 and into Central Texas on Sunday afternoon and
evening. A few strong to severe storms will remain possible with hail
and strong winds the main hazards.

Thunderstorm chances will continue Memorial Day and through the rest
of next week, as an unsettled weather pattern continues across the
region. Widespread severe weather is not anticipated, however a few
strong storms containing strong winds, small hail, and brief heavy
rainfall are possible.

Spotter activation is likely, if storms can break the cap and form
near surface dryline late this afternoon and evening. Limited
spotter activation will remain possible with any overnight storms
accompanying the cold front.
