This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for North and Central Texas.

.DAY ONE...Tonight.
There is a chance of thunderstorms across all of North and Central
Texas tonight. Cloud to ground lightning and heavy rainfall that 
could lead to flooding will be the main threats. 

Temperatures behind a cold front will drop below freezing overnight 
across our northwest counties, causing rain to switch over to 
freezing rain. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for areas along
and north of a line from Sherman to Denton to Weatherford to 
Eastland. Travel may become hazardous in the area late tonight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday.
The Winter Weather Advisory will continue Wednesday. Areas in the
advisory could receive ice accumulations up to a tenth of an inch,
which will cause dangerous driving conditions. 

Chances of thunderstorms are expected to continue into Wednesday. The
threat of heavy rain should shift to east of I-35/I-35E by Wednesday

Thunderstorm chances return late Thursday and continue through
Saturday. Severe weather is not expected at this time, but additional
heavy rainfall could cause additional instances of flooding. 

Spotter activation is not expected at this time but reports of
flooding and freezing rain are appreciated.
