As a cold front and upper level disturbance move across the region, there will be scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms this afternoon. A few strong to severe thunderstorms are expected mainly southeast of a Paris to Goldthwaite line where hail up to 1 inch in diameter and wind gusts to 60 mph will be possible. Elsewhere, brief heavy rain and cloud to ground lightning will accompany some of the storms. It will be mostly cloudy area wide with highs ranging from the upper 60s northwest to the upper 70s southeast. North winds will increase to 15 to 20 mph with some gusts over 25 mph likely along and north of the I-20 corridor.
It looks like the weather pattern favors rain chances to be in place over the Memorial Day Weekend. Saturday will be the hottest day with highs in the 90s and isolated storms before a cold front and higher rain chances arrive on Sunday. High temperatures will be in the 80s both Sunday and Monday. The weekend won't be a washout, but there will be chances for storms each day.
