Rain and the potential for severe storms returns next week

Rain and the potential for severe storms returns next week
Rainy and stormy pattern to start off Meteorological spring

Good Sunday evening!! Temperatures will stay in the 60s feeling warm this evening and overnight.

Monday: temperatures starting warm in the upper 50s and low 60s. Showers are possible in the afternoon with greater chances for rain and a thunderstorm or two during the evening hours Monday night.

Changes creep into the forecast with the arrival of and upper level low and cold front. By Tuesday or Wednesday is when we are expecting that next cold front to bring more of an impact back to the ArkLaTex. The timing on the front is still in question though. The latest trend is that it arrives on Wednesday with another model bringing it in on Tuesday. On Tuesday and lower end threat for severe weather is possible for areas south of I-30. Main threats will be more damaging wind gust and hail.

Timing for severe weather on Tuesday likely in the afternoon/evening hours on Tuesday. So far, more models do agree with rain, heavy at times, throughout Wednesday. By the end of the day, we could see potentially 2-3inches of rain. Flooding not a large concern unless you’re in an area that is flood prone and/or low lying. Highs on Tuesday will reach the upper 60s and low 70s with highs on Wednesday down in the low 60s.

The rain will likely stay with us on Wednesday and exit by Thursday morning. Temperatures will be a little cooler, but will warm up to the 60s. So no major cool down with this cold front.

Have a great weekend everyone and remember, ONE WEEK until clocks SPRING FORWARD!
