Warm weather to continue. Work week ends with strong storms..

More storms next week!

Very warm air to stick around one more day.  Thunderstorms still looking likely late Friday.  Severe storms still on the table.  Weekend looking dry and pleasant.

A large area of upper level high pressure, lots of sunshine, and a breezy southwesterly wind combined to produce near record temperatures across the Arklatex Monday.  Don't expect much change Tuesday.  We'll begin with a mix of sunshine and some morning low clouds.  Those clouds will burn off again leaving plenty of sunshine.  The southwest wind will stick around and allow highs to again climb into the mid to upper 80s.

A weak disturbance will move across the area Wednesday.  As of right now, most models are mainly dry with this system as rainfall chances will probably be less than 20%.  It will be cooler Wednesday as highs will retreat back to the 70s.  Overnight lows will retreat to the mid to upper 50s.

A much stronger disturbance will move across the area late Friday and Friday night.  This system will likely produce some strong to severe storms.  All severe weather threats will be on the table, but wind will likely be the biggest concern as a complex of storms moves across the region. As of right now, SPC has our area's severe risk listed as 'slight'.  It is quite possible that this could change.

Once this system moves through, expect a quiet weekend.  We'll see some pleasant temperatures as highs will be near 80 and lows will dip back into the 50s.  Expect clouds Saturday morning to give way to plenty of sunshine for the rest of the weekend.

Long range models are also hinting at two more strong disturbances that could move across the area next week.  Looks like severe weather season is starting to heat up!
