UNDATED - A line of strong thunderstorms is expected to blast across the area late tonight and early Saturday. Damaging winds, torrential rainfall, and cloud-to-ground lightning are the primary threats.

After this line rolls through, a break in the activity is expected, with additional thunderstorm development possible on Saturday afternoon, most likely east of Interstate 35.

These thunderstorms signal the transition to an active period of weather, with thunderstorms in the forecast almost every day through the upcoming week.
