This afternoon, a couple of pop-up showers and perhaps a thunderstorm are possible southeast of a Cameron to Palestine line. Later this afternoon and evening, a few storms may develop near a dryline and affect areas west of Highway 281. A strong storm or two would be possible with this activity which could produce hail and downburst winds. otherwise, it will be hot and humid with highs in the 90s or low 100s with heat index values a few degrees higher.
Low chances for rain continue on Thursday for parts of the region. In the afternoon hours, the most likely location for isolated to scattered showers and storms is across Central Texas. Some of these storms could become strong producing strong downburst winds. In the evening hours, a few thunderstorms are possible along and west of a line from Bowie to Eastland. These storms may occur as a weakening cluster of storms and may produce gusty winds.
The current stretch of dry weather (23 days) has matched or exceeded the previous longest dry streak of 2017 at both DFW and Waco. Previously, the longest period of no measurable rainfall was from late January through early February when both DFW and Waco were dry for over 3 weeks.
