This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for North and Central Texas.

.DAY ONE...Tonight.
Windy conditions will continue across the western two thirds of the
region through 4 AM with south winds in the 20 to 30 mph range with
some gusts up to 40 mph possible.

Thunderstorms will approach from the west late tonight, potentially
reaching the I-35 corridor before daybreak. However, with a strong
cap remaining in place, severe storms are unlikely. Any storm that
does develop overnight may contain gusty winds and cloud to ground
lightning.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday.
Thunderstorms will spread from west to east through the morning
Friday. As the storms move east of the Interstate 35 corridor early
Friday afternoon they may increase in intensity as they encounter
unstable air. Some strong to severe storms will be possible with
strong winds and large hail the primary hazards. All storms will
move into East Texas Friday evening.

The fire threat may reach critical levels Friday afternoon along and
west of a line from Gainesville to Granbury to Comanche where windy
and dry conditions are expected.

The next chance for thunderstorms will be Sunday afternoon through
Sunday night. Some of these storms could become severe. At this
time, the main hazards appear to be damaging straight-line winds and
large hail. The gusty winds associated with this system may
re-aggravate fire weather concerns Sunday afternoon.

The active springlike pattern will persist, and thunderstorm chances
will return on Tuesday and increase on Wednesday as the next system
approaches.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
Spotter activation is not expected at this time.
