Saturday is a First Alert Weather Day across the ArkLaTex. Strong to severe storms are possible Saturday afternoon and into the evening hours. Damaging winds are the main threat, but hail and perhaps a few tornadoes are also possible. Storms will diminish Sunday and Monday, but another chance of severe weather is possible on Tuesday.
Clouds will fill in overnight. A stray shower is possible. Lows will be close to 70. Saturday will start dry. A few showers are possible by late morning. By early afternoon a line of strong to severe storms will begin tracking into portions of east Texas. Storms will advance eastward into SW Arkansas and NW Louisiana by mid to late afternoon. Temperatures ahead of the storms will warm into the mid 80s.
Showers and storms may diminish during the evening hours, but additional rain and storms are possible later Saturday night into Sunday. Rain chances Sunday will be highest in the morning with only isolated activity in the afternoon. Temperatures will warm back into the mid 80s.
Showers and storms look limited on Monday, but another weather system coming in on Tuesday will pick up the chances for more strong storms. Temperatures early next week will be in the upper 80s.
Storm chances go down and temperatures will edge up for the second half of the week with highs hitting the low 90s for the first time this year.
Have a great weekend!
