This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for North and Central Texas.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.
Low level humidity will continue to increase today east of a dryline
with very warm high temperatures. Heat indices will reach between
100 and 105 degrees this afternoon across a few areas. If planning
to be outdoors for extended periods of time this afternoon, remember
to to wear lightweight clothing, hydrate with water or water-based
fluids, and take frequent breaks indoors or in the shade.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday.
Afternoon heat indices will soar to between 100 and 105 degrees
across some areas once again Saturday afternoon. If planning to be
outdoors for extended periods of time Saturday afternoon, remember to
to wear lightweight clothing, hydrate with water or water-based
fluids, and take frequent breaks indoors or in the shade.

Low thunderstorm chances will return to parts of North and Central
Texas Saturday afternoon and early evening along and east of a
dryline, with better chances overnight Saturday night with a complex
of storms moving southeast out of Oklahoma. Storm development will be
conditional on the strength of the cap, especially Saturday afternoon
and early evening. If the cap is strong, most areas will stay dry.
However, if the cap weakens sufficiently, strong to severe storms
will be possible given the high instability and wind shear present.
Large hail and damaging winds are expected to be the main hazards.
A low tornado threat will be possible with any discrete supercell
thunderstorms, due to the very high instability expected to be in
place Saturday afternoon and evening.

Scattered thunderstorms will continue on Sunday with a southward-
moving cold front. This front may stall across parts of Central Texas
allowing storm chances to continue into Monday, mainly south of
Interstate 20. A few strong to severe storms will remain possible.

Otherwise, an active weather pattern will continue through next week
with storm chances continuing each day Tuesday through Thursday.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
Spotter activation is not expected through tonight.
