Good Saturday evening! A foggy start to the day, but conditions improved throughout the morning, but may see more fog tonight and Sunday morning. We’ll continue with the warming trend now through Sunday with a mostly rain free weekend. However by late Sunday night into early Monday morning, the chance for strong to severe storms returns.

Tonight, clear skies will prevail, with outdoor evening plans under any threat for rain. Temperatures will be in the low 60s and then fall into the 50s tonight. Overnight, temperatures will cool into the mid 40s.

Sunday morning will start off mostly cloudy with areas of patch fog and the slight chance for drizzle. Highs Sunday, amidst a warm front, will climb into the mid and possibly even upper 70s in the afternoon. Winds will be out of the south 5-15mph under cloudy skies. Late Sunday as a cold front approaches the ArkLaTex, showers and storms are likely to develop. A few could become strong to severe with all modes of severe weather possible.

Monday afternoon, the severe weather potential will be greater for much of northwest Louisiana and parts of deep east Texas. A slight risk exists for these areas in part because of the front moving through during daytime heating with increased instability. Damaging wind gusts, hail, and an isolated tornado remain a possibility. Keep tuning in this weekend as we iron out more details as guidance becomes more clear.

Tuesday, cooler and dry as high temperatures only climb into the 50s. More quiet and cool weather will continue for much of the work week.

Have a wonderful weekend!
