National Weather Service United States Department of Commerce

Southerly winds of 20 to 30 mph with some gusts to around 40 mph at times, will decrease to 15 to 25 mph with gusts to around 30 mph after 4 AM. Expect increasing cloudiness overnight with a chance of showers and thunderstorms before daybreak mainly west of the I-35 corridor. Lows will be in the upper 50s to mid 60s.
A Fire Weather Watch is in effect from 11 AM to 6 PM Friday for areas along and west of a line from Gainesville to Granbury to Comanche. Gusty southwest winds and and dry conditions with humidity values in the teens in the highlighted area will result in critical fire weather conditions. AVOID outdoor burning of any sort Friday afternoon, not just in the watch area, but all across the region. DO NOT toss lit cigarette butts from any moving vehicle. Any fires will ignite and spread quickly!
Radar Update (early Friday morning): A line of thunderstorms continues moving east towards North and Central Texas. Severe storms are not occurring along this line, and the storms are expected to remain below strong/severe limits as they move into the region between 4-6 am.
After rounds of rain and thunderstorms on Friday and Sunday, a third round appears to be in the works for the middle of next week. Model guidance indicates that an upper-level low is likely to move into the Southern Plains by next Wednesday and Thursday. Deep Gulf moisture will spread into the Southern Plains ahead of this low, leading to the potential for heavy rainfall. There remains some disagreement in timing and placement of the upper-level low, and thus the heavy rainfall. While it is too early to know the exact amounts of rainfall, the latest data suggests that the primary threat towards the middle of next week would likely be heavy rainfall and flooding rather than severe thunderstorms, though severe weather cannot be ruled out either. We will continue to refine the details over the coming days, and should have a better handle on this third system over the weekend.
