Thursday afternoon forecast high temperatures

Rain will pick up in coverage along the I-30 corridor late this afternoon into tonight. The front will move south overnight bringing rain to much of the region Friday morning before tapering off Friday afternoon and evening. See the latest loop of futurecast below:

Due to the warm air and change in wind direction behind the front we could see 1 or  2 strong/severe storms late this afternoon through early Friday morning. A ‘marginal risk’ is in place northwest of the ArkLaTex later today through tonight, and for the southern half of the ArkLaTex Friday. The main threat will be for damaging wind gusts, with a lesser threat for large hail or an isolated tornado.

Expected rainfall accumulations through Friday night

As the front passes through temperatures will fall Friday afternoon through Friday night setting up what will be a cool and sunny weekend. Saturday highs will be in the 50s, and in the 60s Sunday. Expect cold mornings, but all areas are expected to stay above freezing. 

Our next cold front will impact the region Tuesday. Keep an eye on the forecast next week if you have travel plans for Thanksgiving.
