National Weather Service United States Department of Commerce

The severe weather threat will continue Sunday morning and then again Sunday afternoon and evening. In the morning, some strong to marginally severe storms capable of half to one inch diameter hail are possible north of I-20 near the Red River. Later in the afternoon, additional storms MAY develop ahead of a cold front, however, confidence in any storms developing is quite low at this time. IF storms do form, they would be capable of producing large hail and damaging wind gusts, and a tornado or two cannot be completely ruled out.
Elevated to critical fire weather conditions will return Sunday afternoon west of US-281 as a dryline mixes eastward. On Monday, at least an elevated threat will spread across all of North and Central Texas. A critical fire weather threat will exist, especially west of I-35 where the least rainfall is expected from this weekend's thunderstorms. However, the critical threat could expand across most of the region, depending on how much rain falls Saturday and Sunday.
With the threat for severe thunderstorms in the forecast today and on Sunday, it's a good time to think about severe weather safety and what to do when watches or warnings are issued.
A Severe Thunderstorm Watch is in effect for the yellow shaded areas until 11 PM CDT. The main threat will be large hail. Damaging winds and heavy rainfall still possible.
