Rain continues to fall across the ArkLaTex this morning, and we have seen some strong thunderstorms as well. Storms have been capable of large hail (quarter and ping pong ball sized) and gusty winds. The thunderstorm chance may continue for a few hours past sunrise. Showers will linger throughout the day as an upper level low moves slowly across the region.
This morning most of the rain is falling north of I-20. These bands of rain will be slow to move today and the heaviest rain appears likely to stay across the northern ArkLaTex. As the low moves east some of these showers will get pulled into deep east Texas and Louisiana. See the latest loop of futurecast below:
Temperatures remain in the 40s and 50s this morning, but with a passing cold front and cloud cover temperatures won’t budge today. Look for temperatures to remain in the 40s and low 50s for much of the day.
Wind has turned to the northwest and is at 10 miles per hour this morning. It is going to turn into a breezy day with sustained speeds between 10 and 20 miles per hour, and a few gusts may be above 20 miles per hour at times adding a wind chill to the already cool temperatures.
If you have outdoor evening plans there will be a few lingering showers, but rain will slowly taper off overnight.
The weekend may begin with clouds but sun will make a return during the day Saturday. High temperatures will be in the upper 50s. Sunday will remain partly cloudy with highs in the 60s.
Our next chance of rain will likely move through during the middle of next week.
