Thunderstorms likely overnight and into the weekend.

A cold front is moving across central Texas and that has triggered numerous thunderstorms extending from north central Texas all the way up to Missouri. The thunderstorms are expected to move into the ArkLaTex late Friday into Saturday. We could be looking at a few rounds of thunderstorms late Friday through Sunday morning.

High wind and hail may accompany storms in northeast Texas and Oklahoma after 9 p.m. Friday until about 2 a.m. Saturday. The severe weather threat will be confined to areas primarily along/north of I-30 in Texas/Oklahoma.

(10 a.m. Saturday future clouds and radar):

Forecast models have been showing another line of storms moving in by sunrise on Saturday. If this scenario holds it will bring widespread rain/thunderstorms for much of the morning in all areas. We may see a lull in the activity Saturday afternoon but yet another round of storms could fire up Saturday afternoon/evening due to the incoming front. The severe weather threat is 'marginal' for all areas Saturday, a level 1 threat (lowest) on the 1 to 5 scale.

We may see rain linger into Sunday morning but we should begin to see things calm down Sunday afternoon. If you are planning outdoor activities over the weekend Sunday afternoon/evening is the best bet for dry weather.

Weekend highs will be in the upper 70s and low 80s on Saturday, and in the 70s most areas on Sunday.
