A cold front will move through the ArkLaTex later today bringing an increasing chance of rain and thunderstorms. We will have to be on alert for heavy rain, as well as a low end severe weather threat.
This morning your temperatures are similar to yesterday as we are in the low and mid 60s under mostly cloudy to overcast skies. Rain is impacting areas north of I-30 once again, but any accumulations will be light. Highs this afternoon ahead of the rain will be in the low to mid 70s.
The front is stalled out to our west, but a an upper level low moving out of Texas will give the front the push it needs to move through the ArkLaTex this evening through tomorrow morning. The heaviest rain and main impacts will be this evening through the overnight. See the latest timing from futurecast below:
While the severe weather threat is lower than previous weeks, we could see a few storms bring high wind. A secondary threat exists for hail and a brief tornado. The SPC has a ‘marginal’ and ‘slight’ risk for areas along and south of I-20.
The bigger threat may be an additional round of heavy rainfall. 1 to 2 inch accumulations will be possible in all areas, with a corridor of 2 to 4 inch amounts across northeast Texas. Isolated flash flooding could be possible late tonight through Thursday morning.
Skies will rapidly clear Friday bringing back some sunshine and Friday is setting up to be a pleasant day with highs in the upper 70s. The partly cloudy skies will remain through the weekend with highs in the low to mid 80s. The next chance of rain appears on the way for next Tuesday/Wednesday.
