A surface low and dryline will approach western North Texas late Friday afternoon. In addition, a frontal boundary will be located across central Oklahoma. To the south and east of these boundaries across North Texas, the atmosphere will be quite unstable but capped. If the capping can break to the northwest of the Metroplex, isolated severe storms could develop. Better storm chances are expected on Saturday across the region.
