AREA...Along and west of a Bartlesville to McAlester line.
ONSET...After 7 PM.

Elevated showers and thunderstorms are ongoing this afternoon
across the Texas panhandle and western Oklahoma ahead of an upper
level low pressure system. A warm front lies south of the Red
River, from near Lubbock east across north central Texas. As the
warm front lifts north, additional storms will develop across
west Texas and southwest Oklahoma, eventually moving into eastern
Oklahoma late tonight. Storms will likely be elevated as they
move into eastern Oklahoma, and will pose a threat for large hail
and strong to isolated severe wind gusts. Because storms are
expected to be elevated, the tornado threat is very low.

In addition, heavy rain is forecast for portions of eastern
Oklahoma with 1 to 2 inches of rain possible. This could cause
some locally heavy runoff or brief flash flooding.

Activation of the Regional Spotter Network Likely.

WEDNESDAY...Severe Thunderstorm Potential...Heavy Rain Potential.
THURSDAY...Thunderstorm Potential.
FRIDAY...No Hazards.
SATURDAY through Monday...Thunderstorm Potential.

The severe threat on Wednesday will depend on how storms develop
this evening. There will be an axis of instability that develops
across eastern Oklahoma ahead of a cold front, and storms are
expected to develop by afternoon. Some of these storms could
become severe with threats of large hail and damaging winds with a
limited threat for tornadoes.

A chance for thunderstorms remains in the forecast Thursday and
for the weekend. Contains additional information.

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for North and Central Texas.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.
A strong low pressure system will bring the next rounds of
thunderstorms to North and Central Texas. Scattered thunderstorms
are expected to develop late this afternoon, with the greatest
coverage west of US-281 initially. These storms would be capable of
producing large hail, damaging wind gusts, and a tornado or two as

damaging wind threat, although severe hail and an isolated tornado are
also possible. In addition, there will be a threat for localized
instances of flash flooding, especially for locales that receive
heavy rainfall from both waves of thunderstorms.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday.

Thunderstorm chances will linger on Wednesday north and east of a
Breckenridge to Weatherford to Lampasas line. The threat for severe
storms will continue mainly east of the I-35/I-35E corridor with a
