This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for North and Central Texas.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.
Isolated to scattered thunderstorms are expected to develop this
afternoon as strong daytime heating ensues and results in high
instability across the region. The best potential for strong to
severe storms containing hail, gusty downburst winds, and frequent
lightning will be along and west of a Sherman, to Dallas, to Waco and
Temple line. By this evening, the better chances for these hazards
are expected to be south of I-20 and west of I-35 across western
Central Texas, before storms move south out of the area by midnight
or during the pre-dawn hours Thursday morning.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday.
After a dry period Thursday through Sunday afternoon, low
thunderstorm chances will return across areas west of a Comanche,
Weatherford, Gainesville line Sunday night. These low storm chances
will continue into Monday with the approach of a weakening cold
front. However, confidence remains low at this time on actual storm
coverage and any potential for severe weather.

Limited spotter activation may be requested through this evening,
especially along and west of I-35 where the greatest potential for a
few severe storms will exist.
