Cooler air has arrived at the surface behind a cold front that has moved through the region. The stalled front to our south, and a disturbance moving out of south Texas and lifting the warm air over the stalled front will bring a chance of showers and thunderstorms today, followed by a final round of possible heavy rain tomorrow morning.
Quite the change this morning as temperatures have cooled into the 50s and low 60s. Highs will be in the 60s and low 70s this afternoon. We have rain ongoing in some areas along and south of I-20.
We do have a Flash Flood Watch in effect for most areas south of I-30 through tomorrow. Due to the heavy rain this week, it won’t take much rain for runoff to make its way into streets and produce flash flooding.
The chance of rain will increase as we move through the day, but with the cooler air in place we aren’t likely to see any severe weather. See the latest loop of futurecast below which will take you through the rain tomorrow:
There is a ‘marginal’ risk for strong/severe storms Saturday, as we will see a final push of storms during the morning that may linger into the early afternoon.
Projected rainfall accumulations will be in the 1 to 3 inch range, with the highest totals across the Toledo Bend region.
Thankfully we will see some sun return on what should be a dry and comfortable Mother’s Day. We will stay dry Monday and Tuesday before our next chance of rain/storms during the middle of the upcoming week. This rain does not look to be heavy.
