This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for North and Central Texas.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.
There is a low chance for a thunderstorm or two through 9 AM for
areas near the Red River. Severe weather appears unlikely during this
time frame, with a small hail and gusty wind threat.

Thunderstorm chances will increase this afternoon for areas along and
north of the I-20 corridor. Sufficient amounts of instability and
wind shear are in place for strong to severe thunderstorms capable of
large hail and damaging winds. The tornado threat appears low at this
time, but any storms that are isolated or interact with any type of
outflow boundaries may have a tornado threat.

The risk for severe weather will spread southward towards the I-20
corridor through the evening hours. The main hazards with
thunderstorms will be damaging winds and hail. Brief periods of heavy
rain may result in isolated instances of flooding.

Thunderstorms will continue beyond midnight through Saturday mid-
morning across portions of East and Central TX. The severe weather
threat should diminish, but a few strong to near severe storms will
be capable of producing gusty winds, hail and heavy rain.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday.
Low chances for thunderstorms will return on Thursday. Instability
and wind shear will be in place to support the threat for strong to
severe thunderstorms.

Spotter activation will likely be needed late this afternoon and
evening for areas near and north of the I-20 corridor. Additional
spotter activation may be requested south of I-20 between midnight
and Saturday mid-morning if severe weather persists.
