This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for North and Central Texas.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.
The combination of very dry air, warm temperatures, and gusty west
winds will result in Critical Fire Weather conditions today. A Red
Flag Warning is in effect from 10 AM to 7 PM today north and west of
a Gainesville to Weatherford to Eastland line. An elevated fire
weather threat exists elsewhere.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday.
Thunderstorm chances return to all of North and Central Texas
Saturday through Sunday night. A few storms could become severe by
Saturday afternoon and evening across Central Texas and near the I-20
corridor. The primary threats would be from damaging wind gusts and
large hail. Additional thunderstorms capable of producing marginally
severe hail will be possible north of I-20 and east of I-35 late
Saturday night and into Sunday morning.

A few strong to severe storms with a hail and damaging wind potential
are also possible later on Sunday near and east of Interstate 35.
Any severe weather threat will depend on if a capping inversion aloft
can weaken and how much the atmosphere can recover from Saturday`s
storms. We will continue to refine any severe weather impacts for
this weekend in future forecasts.

An elevated to critical fire weather threat may also surface again
on Sunday and Monday afternoons.

Spotter activation is not expected at this time.
