Rain and thunderstorms Monday.. spring weather for the upcoming week

An upper level low is now moving into the Plains and thunderstorms are developing in central Texas and Oklahoma. Due to the slow movement of this system the rain and storm threat won't move into the ArkLaTex until after midnight.

Clouds will increase tonight and a few scattered rain showers will be possible during the overnight hours. A line of thunderstorms will approach our east Texas and Oklahoma counties in the hours just before or slightly after sunrise. As the storms move in they will bring a 'marginal risk' of severe weather in east Texas with high wind and hail being the severe weather threats.

The line will weaken as it moves across Texas in the morning, but it will push the rain and scattered thunderstorms into Louisiana/Arkansas during the mid-morning to afternoon. All areas will see rain on Monday, with 1 to 2 inch accumulations. Due to the slow movement of the upper level system the rain may linger overhead throughout the day and into Monday night. Despite the rain temperatures will stay comfortable, we will be in the 60s Monday morning with afternoon highs in the upper 60s and low 70s.

The upper low will move across the region on Tuesday keeping a chance of scattered rain in the forecast. We should begin to see a drying trend late Tuesday and early Wednesday. Highs Wednesday through Friday will be in the 70s with overnight lows in the 40s and 50s.

A cold front late Friday won't bring much if any rainfall, but it will cool us into the 60s next Saturday under sunny skies.
