Threat for strong to severe storms to continue

Severe risk highest lateTuesday night.

Strong to severe storms possible Tuesday night.  Temperatures return to normal for most of the week.  More rain possible by the end of the weekend.

The first of two disturbances moved through the area Sunday night into Monday.  We are now in between systems and any thunderstorm activity that we experience Monday night through Tuesday afternoon should be rather isolated.  However, any storm that pops up Monday evening could be strong with hail the biggest concern.  As the second system moves closer Tuesday, expect a mostly cloudy sky and a gusty south wind of 15 to 20 mph.  That south wind will bring plenty of moisture north from the Gulf of Mexico.  Tuesday night a cold front will move through the area and will bring a chance for another round of storms late Tuesday night.  The Storm Prediction Center has the biggest risk of severe weather to the north of the Arklatex over northern Arkansas, Missouri, and Illinois.  We will see slight chance for severe weather here.  Our biggest threat will probably be damaging straight line wind.  An isolated tornado or two cannot be ruled out.  This is a catch to this event.  That catch is that it is quite possible that much of the area could remain totally dry.  Moral of the story?  If you get rain and storms in the next 36 hours, severe weather will be possible.

Once this second disturbance moves through the area, we'll see the return of lots of sunshine Wednesday afternoon.  Once that sunshine returns, expect it to stick around until the weekend.  Clouds will be on the increase Saturday.  The chance for rain will begin to increase Sunday through Monday. 

After highs Tuesday in the low to middle 80s,  temperatures should return to more normal levels for the rest of the week.  Highs will fall to the mid to upper 60s.  Lows will fall to the low to middle 40s.
