A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is issued when conditions are favorable for severe thunderstorms. This watch includes the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex.

Stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio and/or media outlets for additional information and possible warnings.
Chances of showers and thunderstorms will continue through mid morning southeast of a Sulphur Springs to Temple line, followed by decreasing cloudiness. Elsewhere, skies will be mostly sunny. It will be breezy and cooler with highs will be in the 70s. Winds will be northerly at 10 to 20 mph. Gusts over 25 mph are likely through midday.
Low chances of showers and thunderstorms will return Friday east of a Bonham to Hearne line. Otherwise, we will have dry weather next week. Gusty north to northwest winds and drier air behind a cold front Tuesday will result in elevated fire weather concerns.
