Temperatures this morning have dipped into the 30s and low 40s, with a few freezing temperatures north of Interstate-30 in Arkansas and Oklahoma.
We are seeing some cloud cover south of I-20, and we will see partly cloudy skies today with passing clouds expected to mix in with some sunshine. Despite the presence of clouds, no rain is in the forecast. High temperatures will warm comfortably into the 60s this afternoon as a south wind returns mid-day. The breeze should stay light at 5 to 10 miles per hour.
Highs will return to the 70s Friday and Saturday. However, a returning warm front will bring a chance of showers and thunderstorms on Saturday. The Storm Prediction Center has already placed the ArkLaTex in its slight and marginal risk threat areas. Storms that form on Saturday will have the potential to produce large hail and high wind. We could see another inch of rain where thunderstorms develop.
