THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR NORTH AND CENTRAL TEXAS.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.
A FEW THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE TODAY ALONG AND WEST OF A
LINE FROM JACKSBORO...TO GLEN ROSE...TO HEARNE. THE ACTIVITY MAY
LINGER INTO THE EVENING HOURS. CLOUD-TO-GROUND LIGHTNING WILL BE
THE PRIMARY CONCERN...BUT GUSTY WINDS MAY ALSO OCCUR NEAR
THUNDERSTORMS. AFTER MIDNIGHT...THUNDERSTORMS MAY ENTER WESTERN
PORTIONS OF NORTH TEXAS...BUT THIS ACTIVITY IS NOT EXPECTED TO BE
SEVERE.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY.
A COMPLEX OF THUNDERSTORMS MAY BE ONGOING AT DAYBREAK SUNDAY.
THESE STORMS MAY IMPACT MUCH OF NORTH AND CENTRAL TEXAS THROUGHOUT
THE DAY SUNDAY. CLOUD-TO-GROUND LIGHTNING AND GUSTY WINDS WILL
BE THE PRIMARY HAZARDS FROM THESE STORMS. REGARDLESS OF THE
EXTENT OF THE STORMS ON SUNDAY...ANOTHER COMPLEX MAY APPROACH FROM
WEST TEXAS LATE SUNDAY NIGHT INTO MONDAY MORNING.

DAILY THUNDERSTORM CHANCES WILL PREVAIL THROUGHOUT MUCH OF THE
UPCOMING WORKWEEK...BUT A CAPPING INVERSION MAY LIMIT THE AMOUNT
OF ACTIVITY DURING THE AFTERNOON HOURS...PARTICULARLY ON
WEDNESDAY. THE MOST LIKELY DAYS FOR AFTERNOON THUNDERSTORMS TO
DEVELOP WITHIN NORTH AND CENTRAL TEXAS LOOK TO BE MONDAY...
BEFORE THE CAP IS ABLE TO REALLY STRENGTHEN...AND ON THURSDAY AND
FRIDAY...WHEN LARGE-SCALE LIFT FROM AN APPROACHING STORM SYSTEM
SPREADS ACROSS THE REGION. IN ADDITION...A WEST TEXAS DRYLINE IS
EXPECTED TO SERVE AS A FOCUS FOR THE INITIATION OF THUNDERSTORMS
EACH DAY...AND THIS ACTIVITY MAY REACH NORTH AND CENTRAL TEXAS
DURING THE EVENING OR OVERNIGHT HOURS...AND MAY CONTINUE
THROUGHOUT THE MORNING. WITH A HUMID AND UNSTABLE ATMOSPHERE IN
PLACE...THERE WILL BE A CHANCE FOR SEVERE STORMS THROUGHOUT THE
WEEK.
