for marginally severe hail, given the elevated instability.

south of Interstate 40. The risk will be lessened in areas which
receive a good amount of rain this afternoon and evening.
Temperatures will gradually trend warmer through the upcoming
week. Above normal temperatures by late week along with increasing
southerly winds will raise fire weather concerns for both
Thursday and Friday. The next chance of thunderstorms arrives next
weekend. contains additional information.
