Storms — and possibly some severe weather — are likely heading toward Dallas-Fort Worth, but the extent of their impact is still up in the atmosphere.

The storms in question were developing Wednesday afternoon in West and Central Texas. They could make their way to North Texas by Thursday morning, KXAS-TV (NBC5) meteorologist Brian James said.

The storms will likely be less strong when they arrive, but could pack some severe weather including straight-line winds or gusts, hail and even a tornado.

Here is our latest thinking on the timing of storms tonight. Two rounds of storms are expected to move across parts of the region, and there could be strong/severe storms will both rounds #texomawx #dfwwx #ctxwx

Option A, according to James, would involve storms moving in around 6 a.m. Thursday. If they arrive early enough, there could be more storms in the afternoon.

Option B would mean two waves of storms, one between 6 and 9 a.m. and another between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. If that happens "there’s not going to be enough atmospheric juice for storms later in the day," James said.

As of Wednesday afternoon, he was leaning more toward the second scenario.

"But there’s still plenty of time for mother nature to prove me wrong," James said.

510 PM Radar Update: Tracking the storms to our west, these storms could move into our western counties as early as 8-9 pm, and they could still be strong/severe. Additional storms also expected overnight #dfwwx #texomawx #ctxwx

Some areas could quickly pick up a half an inch to an inch of rain, but most will only get about a tenth to half an inch.

"The overarching theme is there are still a lot of question marks," James said.

As for Wednesday, nothing is expected outside of a random sprinkle or light shower.

There is a 60 percent to 100 percent chance of storms Thursday and a 60 percent chance for showers on Friday. The clouds will part Sunday for a sunny and warm day, but they’re expected to come back Monday.

Here’s what KXAS-TV (NBC5) has in the forecast for the week:

Thursday: 82/71

Friday: 76/68

Saturday: 79/57

Sunday: 84/61

Monday: 85/62
