Hazardous Weather Outlook for Thursday and Friday, May 10-11, 2017

The National Weather Service has posted a Hazardous Weather Outlook is for North and Central Texas.

Today and Tonight expect a few thunderstorms are possible this afternoon across the region. Lightning strikes will be the main hazards with any storms. A few storms could be strong and may approach severe limits this afternoon. The main hazards will be large hail and strong winds. Isolated to widely scattered storms will also be possible tonight, especially for areas west of a Temple to Terrell to Bonham line. Hail will be the main storm hazard.

A more appreciable threat for widespread thunderstorms is expected on Thursday and Thursday night as a dryline and cold front move across the region. As the capping inversion weakens, strong to severe storms capable of large hail and damaging winds are expected to develop, mainly east of a Gainesville to Granbury to Temple line during the afternoon hours. There will also be a risk for a tornado or two, especially if storms are able to remain discrete in nature. Towards the evening hours, storms should congeal into a line which will likely foster more of a damaging wind threat.

Thunderstorms may linger into the early morning hours on Friday morning across portions of East and Central TX. There will be chance for thunderstorms across parts of North and Central TX on Monday and Tuesday.
