This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for North and Central Texas.

.DAY ONE...Tonight.
No hazardous weather is expected at this time.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday.
Scattered thunderstorms will develop by mid afternoon Sunday, before
evolving into a broken line of storms across far eastern North and
Central Texas by Sunday evening. A few strong to brief severe storms
are possible east of a Bonham, to Terrell, to Mexia, to Cameron line
Sunday afternoon and evening. Damaging winds and frequent lightning
would be the main threat with any severe storms. However, if warmer
temperatures and higher instability develop more than expected east
of the dryline, then small hail and even an isolated tornado within,
or ahead of the line of storms would be possible.

In addition the threat for rapidly spreading wildfires will be high
Sunday afternoon through the mid evening Sunday along and west of
U.S. 281. These areas will experience the windiest, warmer, and very
dry conditions behind a surface dryline. Combined with plentiful dry
vegetation, fires can start quickly and spread rapidly. Both Red Flag
Warnings and continued Fire Weather Watch are in effect for Sunday
afternoon across much of western North Texas.

Low chances for thunderstorms will return to the forecast by the end
of the week, as another storm system approaches from the west.

Spotter activation is not expected at this time.
