FIRST ALERT: Severe storms return Saturday

We’ll get one more day of calm weather Friday before storms return on Saturday. The threat for severe weather is going up with the greatest risk of strong storms expected across eastern Texas. An active pattern will keep showers and storms in the forecast through early next week with another chance of severe weather possible around Tuesday. After the storms end around midweek temperatures could hit 90 for the first time this year.

Skies will be mostly clear tonight. Temperatures will fall back into the low to mid 60s. Expect another day of mostly sunny and warm weather tomorrow. There’s a very slim chance for an afternoon shower, but most areas will stay dry. Temperatures will be back in the mid to upper 80s.

A few showers are possible on the western edge of the ArkLaTex first thing Saturday morning. Additional showers and storms will arrive across east Texas during the afternoon hours. Some of these storms could be severe. Temperatures will warm back into the mid 80s. Showers and storms will expand across the rest of the area during the evening and overnight hours with additional severe weather possible.

Rain and storms will be most widespread Sunday morning, but should be moving out of most of the area for the afternoon. We’ll warm back into the mid to upper 80s Sunday afternoon.

A few showers and storms are possible Monday. By Tuesday a strong storm system moving into the region will bring the chance of more severe weather to parts of the ArkLaTex. Rain and storms should begin winding down by Wednesday. Temperatures will stay very warm with highs in the upper 80s.

The end of the week is looking drier with temperatures around 90 as we get ready to head into the Memorial Day weekend.

Have a good night!
