Monday will be a cloudy and breezy afternoon with highs into the lower to middle 80s. A shower or two is possible. However, rain chances will become much higher starting Tuesday.
During much of the upcoming work week, we are watching a slow moving cold front head into the ArkLaTex. The region will have ample amounts of moisture to produce heavy rain. As of now, the best chance of rain will come Wednesday and Thursday. Starting Tuesday, scattered thunderstorms will occur mainly across the Interstate 30 region. Strong to severe storms will possible. Everyone will see a better chance of showers and storms for Wednesday and Thursday. Along with the severe weather potential, flash flooding will become a concern.
Through the end of the week, rain totals will average between 2-3 inches with locally higher amounts.
