Both severe thunderstorms and fire danger possible Tuesday

GREENVILLE — Tuesday could bring a mix of both potentially severe thunderstorms and in their wake an elevated danger of grass fires across the area.

The National Weather Service issued the following hazardous weather outlook this morning:

DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

SCATTERED SHOWERS AND A FEW THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE ACROSS ALL OF NORTH TEXAS BY LATE TONIGHT. THE BEST CHANCE FOR THUNDERSTORMS WILL GENERALLY BE NORTH OF INTERSTATE 20. SEVERE WEATHER IS NOT ANTICIPATED TONIGHT.

DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY.

SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED ACROSS MUCH OF NORTH TEXAS ON TUESDAY INTO TUESDAY EVENING. SOME STORMS ARE EXPECTED TO BE SEVERE WITH DAMAGING WINDS BEING THE MAIN THREAT. THE TORNADO THREAT ACROSS NORTH TEXAS IS EXPECTED TO BE LOW. THE GREATEST THREAT FOR SEVERE WEATHER IS LIKELY TO BE ACROSS THE EASTERN COUNTIES MAINLY EAST OF A PARIS TO TERRELL TO PALESTINE LINE TUESDAY AFTERNOON INTO THE EVENING HOURS.

IN ADDITION TO ANY SEVERE WEATHER...STRONG WEST WINDS AND MUCH DRIER AIR ARE EXPECTED BEHIND THE DEVELOPING LINE OF THUNDERSTORMS. THIS WILL LEAD TO DANGEROUS FIRE WEATHER CONDITIONS ACROSS PARTS OF NORTH TEXAS TUESDAY AFTERNOON INTO THE EVENING. A FIRE WEATHER WATCH IS IN EFFECT WEST OF A BOWIE TO FORT WORTH TO GOLDTHWAITE LINE TUESDAY AFTERNOON.

Hunt County is not currently under a burn ban, although there are still certain restrictions to outdoor burning. The burning of household trash is only permissible during daylight hours and the wind speed cannot be greater then 23 mph. Natural materials, such as brush and limbs can be burned, but not treated or painted lumber. No prohibited material — including but not limited to rubber, plastics, wire, insulation and furniture — can be burned, and a responsible person must be present during active burning.
