THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR NORTH AND CENTRAL TEXAS.

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT.
OUTFLOW BOUNDARIES FROM THIS MORNING`S STORMS COULD SERVE AS A
FOCUS FOR THUNDERSTORM DEVELOPMENT LATE THIS AFTERNOON. ALTHOUGH
THE CAP HAS STRENGTHENED...INSTABILITY WILL BE SUFFICIENT FOR
ANY STORMS THAT FORM TO BECOME SEVERE...WITH DAMAGING WINDS AND
UP TO PING PONG BALL SIZE HAIL BEING THE PRIMARY HAZARDS.

THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED AGAIN THIS AFTERNOON ALONG THE WEST
TEXAS DRYLINE. THIS ACTIVITY MAY REACH WESTERN PORTIONS OF NORTH
TEXAS THIS EVENING...AND COULD AFFECT AREAS NORTH OF THE I-20
CORRIDOR AFTER MIDNIGHT TONIGHT. DAMAGING WINDS WOULD BE THE
PRIMARY HAZARD DURING THE EARLY MORNING HOURS.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY.
DESPITE CONSIDERABLE INSTABILITY ON TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY...A
STRONG CAPPING INVERSION SHOULD PREVENT THE DAYTIME INITIATION OF
THUNDERSTORMS.

AS A STORM SYSTEM APPROACHES LATE IN THE WEEK...HELPING TO WEAKEN
THE CAP...THUNDERSTORM CHANCES WILL RETURN THURSDAY AND FRIDAY.
THE ATMOSPHERE WILL REMAIN UNSTABLE...AND WITH INCREASING VERTICAL
WIND SHEAR...SEVERE STORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE THROUGH THE PERIOD.
LARGE HAIL AND DAMAGING WIND WILL BE THE PRIMARY THREATS...BUT
TORNADIC STORMS WILL ALSO BE POSSIBLE.

THUNDERSTORM CHANCES MAY LINGER ON SATURDAY...BUT SUNDAY LOOKS TO
BE RAIN-FREE.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
LIMITED SPOTTER ACTIVATION MAY BE REQUESTED THIS AFTERNOON AND
EVENING.
