A cold front will move in tomorrow bringing an increasing chance of rain and thunderstorms. With the front moving in during the warm afternoon and evening hours, we may see a line of thunderstorms develop late in the day that carries into early Friday morning. The Storm Prediction Center is highlighting much of the ArkLaTex in their ‘slight risk’ outlook for strong to severe storms Thursday through early Friday. Damaging wind gusts will be the primary severe weather hazard, but hail and a few isolated tornadoes may be possible as well. 

Severe weather risk Thursday afternoon through early Friday morning


We may see a 2nd line of storms move in Friday morning before cooler air arrives during the day and turns off the severe weather threat. Rain is expected to continue for much of the day Friday before tapering off as we move into Saturday. It looks like we’ll see a break from rainfall much of the day Saturday with cool highs in the 50s. 


Rain will return quickly Saturday night into Sunday morning as our next disturbance moves in.  Some areas may receive 2 to 4 inches of rain with the highest accumulations south of I-20. While no widespread flooding is expected, a localized flood threat could develop.
