This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for North and Central Texas.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.
A few thunderstorms are possible today east of a Cooper to Corsicana
to Cameron line. A cap should limit the extent of storms, but with
considerable instability, any storms that are able to develop
this afternoon could quickly become severe with large hail and
damaging winds. An isolated tornado cannot be ruled out.

Late this afternoon and this evening, some thunderstorms may form
along a dryline to our west and could move into areas west of a line
from Gainesville to Weatherford to Stephenville. These storms could
potentially be severe with a threat for damaging winds, hail, and
possibly an isolated tornado.

Showers and thunderstorms will become more numerous late this evening
into the overnight hours as a cold front moves through the region. A
line of storms is expected to develop along the front, and severe
storms are expected. The most likely area for severe storms is north
of a Comanche to Athens line. Damaging winds will be the main
threat, but some hail may also occur. In addition, there will be
sufficient instability for a few tornadoes to be embedded within the
line. These type of tornadoes are usually fast moving and difficult
to see. Heavy rainfall may also result in some flooding issues. A
threat for severe storms also exists south of the aforementioned
area, but we anticipate the overall severity of the line will be
weakening as it moves across Central Texas.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday.
All of these storms should move southeast of the area on Sunday with
cooler air filtering in behind the cold front.

Thunderstorms may accompany a cold front on Friday.

Some spotter activation may occur this afternoon east of a Cooper to
Corsicana to Cameron line. Spotter activation is likely across much
of North Texas, and possibly Central Texas, late this evening and
overnight as a line of severe storms moves across the region.
