Temperatures will be a good 10-15 degrees above normal, fueled by strong south winds averaging 15-30 miles per hour. Wind Advisories continue until 1 PM for gusts 40-45 miles per hour.
Severe storms look likely in the Arklatex Friday afternoon through Friday night. Parts of Northeast Texas and Arkansas are under a moderate severe storm risk (4 on a scale of 5). Threats of large hail, damaging winds, tornadoes, and locally heavy rainfall are all possible during this event. It will be chilly Sunday with high temperatures only reaching the low to mid 40s and another freeze Sunday night as we dip to near 30. Because the line of storms will be moving slowly a threat for flash flooding will develop.
Not everyone in DFW will see storms as any storms are expected to be isolated to scattered. If storms arrive early in the day, they will have less instability to work with.
The threat of storms could last all the way into Sunday morning for east Alabama. It is pulling in a very gusty, south wind ahead of the front. This line of storms will likely bring strong winds and areas of heavy rain. The low will be around 42, with a south wind of 15 to 20 miles per hour decreasing to 8 to 13 miles per hour after midnight. Tomorrow will see a south west wind that will lift the humidity even more and I suspect many will find tomorrow uncomfortably humid.
Precipitation will change to all snow this evening and overnight.
Tuesday, it will be mostly sunny with a high near 69, the weather service said.
Wednesday saw temperatures in the low 80s, while Thursday stayed mostly in the 70s.
Plenty of sun, breezy and MUCH COOLER. High of 62 and a low of 50.
With the tornado threat a bit higher for this particular storm setup today, please make sure you have a way to get notified of threatening weather, should any warnings be issued for your particular area.
