We are off to a cool start again this morning with temperatures running in the 30s and 40s under mostly clear skies. 


As we move through the day we will continue to see mostly sunny then partly cloudy skies. A breezy southwest wind will develop later this morning with sustained speeds of 15 miles per hour and a few gusts over 20 miles per hour at times. The south wind and sunshine will warm high temperatures into the low and mid 70s in most areas. We may see a few areas of Oklahoma and Arkansas top out in the upper 60s.

A warm front will surge north tonight and bring a chance of a few rain showers near midnight and continuing into Saturday morning. An upper level wind shift combined with the warm and unstable air at the surface will lead to the development of thunderstorms Saturday afternoon through Saturday night. Some of the storms could be strong to severe with large hail, high wind gusts, and an isolated tornado possible. The Storm Prediction Center continues to show much of the northern half of the ArkLaTex in the ‘slight’ and ‘marginal’ risk zones for severe weather. The highest likelihood of severe weather will be in areas along the Louisiana/Arkansas border. Rainfall accumulations could be in the 1/2″ to 1″ range across the eastern half of the ArkLaTex. 

What is left of the rain will come to an end Sunday morning and we will salvage the weekend with dry conditions much of the day Sunday, with cooler temperatures in the 50s and 60s.
