FBTX ~ There is a threat of severe weather and locally heavy rainfall Friday afternoon and overnight Friday, primarily along and east of I-35/35W. There may be a few snowflakes mixing in with the rain Saturday morning across the Red River Valley, but no impacts are expected. Additionally, there is an elevated fire weather threat late this morning through this afternoon generally west of I-35/3

   Confidence has increased regarding the potential for severe weather Friday afternoon and evening for areas along and east of Interstate 35/35W. A surface low will move east across Oklahoma Friday, with a cold front moving into North and Central Texas Friday afternoon. Any thunderstorms that develop ahead of the front on Friday afternoon will be capable of becoming strong to severe with all modes of severe weather possible, including tornadoes. The cold front will move through the region Friday evening, accompanied by a line of showers and thunderstorms. Damaging wind gusts and locally heavy rainfall will be the primary threat with the line of storms. A few tornadoes may also be embedded within this line of storms.

   As the system continues east, lingering light precipitation behind the front could briefly change over to a rain/snow mix along the Texas/Oklahoma border in the early morning hours Saturday. No accumulation or impacts are expected at this time as surface temperatures should remain above freezing, and the precipitation will remain light.
