This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for North and Central Texas.

.DAY ONE...Tonight.

High to extreme fire weather conditions will occur late this morning
through early evening along and west of Interstate 35/35E due to
strong and gusty winds and low humidity behind a dryline. A Red Flag
Warning is in effect for locations along and west of a Goldthwaite to
Dallas to Sherman line.

Thunderstorms will move east across the region today. As the storms
move east of the Interstate 35 corridor this afternoon they will
likely increase in intensity as they encounter unstable air. Some
strong to severe storms will be possible with strong winds and large
hail the primary hazards. An isolated tornado is possible southeast
of a Canton to Centerville line. All storms will move into East and
Southeast Texas Friday evening.

A Wind Advisory is in effect late this morning through early evening
along and west of a line from Comanche to Glen Rose to Gainesville
where southwest winds of 20 to 30 mph with gusts up to 40 mph will
occur.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday.

The next chance for thunderstorms will be Sunday afternoon through
Sunday night. Some of these storms could become severe. At this
time, the main hazards appear to be damaging straight-line winds and
large hail, but a threat for tornadoes cannot be ruled out.

The fire threat may reach high to critical levels Sunday afternoon
west of Interstate 35/35W where windy and dry conditions are
expected.

The active springlike pattern will persist, and thunderstorm chances
will return on Tuesday and increase on Wednesday as the next system
approaches. Severe weather and flooding may be possible with this
mid-week system.

Spotter activation is not expected at this time.
