Pop-up showers and storms will be out there during the heat of the day mainly western North Texas. 

Storms will be very hit or miss, but if you find yourself underneath one you can expect heavy rain, lightning, gusty winds, and maybe some pea-size hail. A very low-end severe risk is possible south of the metroplex.

Rest of the week through this weekend

T-storm chances look fairly low Friday, but not impossible to have a t-storm here or there.

On Saturday, it does look like there is a potential for some strong storms.

 2 rounds: mid-late morning and again in the afternoon. 

Saturday storms round 1: Mid to late morning. A complex of storms brings parts of the area strong winds and heavy rain. This complex originates in Oklahoma and moves southeast into North Texas. The highest threat will be for areas north of I-20 and east of DFW. It'll weaken early afternoon. 

Saturday storms round 2: Mid to late afternoon. Outflow from morning storms & a dryline interact to bring redevelopment in the afternoon. This increases the threat of damaging winds, large hail, and localized flooding with a low tornado threat. Storms likely start west or northwest of DFW and move southeast.
