    After thunderstorms fire over the southern High Plains Monday evening, a complex of storms will ride southeastward over northern and central Texas into Tuesday morning.

    Storms Monday evening from west Texas, eastern New Mexico and the Oklahoma panhandle to eastern Colorado and western Kansas had the potential to bring damaging wind gusts, large hail and a couple of tornadoes.

    Some of the storms will survive the overnight hours by focusing along frontal zone reaching west to east across northern Texas.

    The storms are likely to build southeastward into the warm air from Abilene to Dallas-Ft. Worth during the early morning hours Tuesday. As they move along the risks from the storms will mostly be from damaging wind gusts and flash flooding.

    There is a chance the storms continue to re-fire during Tuesday midday and afternoon, reaching areas from Austin to Houston.

    A similar complex of storms formed over the central High Plains Sunday night and drifted across Oklahoma and northern Texas into Monday morning.

    The new complex of storms is forecast to fire and move farther to the south than the storms from Sunday night.
