The greatest risk of severe weather for the ArkLaTex will be on Thursday. However, most of the area probably won't have to worry about storms or the threat of severe weather.

On Thursday, I-30 and points north will be under a Slight Risk of severe weather, so a few storms will be capable of producing large hail and damaging winds. This is also the part of the ArkLaTex that will have the best storm chances. The further southeast you are the lower your storm chances are.

For most, Thursday is going to be a warm, muggy and breezy day. Highs will be in the mid-80s. Scattered showers and storms will be possible, mainly across the northwestern corner of the ArkLaTex.

A few of the storms that find the ArkLaTex throughout the day could be strong to severe.

Most of us won't have to worry about dodging any raindrops until Friday. Rain chances will increase from northwest to southeast across the area on Friday. Highs on Friday will be near 80 degrees.

On Friday, a cold front will drop through the area and give us our best chance of rain this week. Right now, the threat of strong to severe storms on Friday looks very low.

Overall, the upcoming weekend looks nice. Sunday will be the better half because it is going to be warmer and dry. Highs on Saturday will be in the upper 70s to near 80 degrees. Highs on Sunday will be in the low to mid-80s.

The start of next week will be warm and dry. Highs will be in the low to mid-80s. Overnight lows will be near 60F.
