The cap is likely going to suppress storm development today, but IF storms are able to develop or move into North Texas, the most likely location would be north of Interstate 20. These storms will likely be severe with a threat for large hail, damaging winds, and isolated tornado(es). Better rain chances will occur north of the Red River. The most likely time for storms is 4 to 9 pm.
Showers and thunderstorms will accompany a strong upper level low pressure system and a cold front on Saturday. Some thunderstorms will likely become severe, mainly during the afternoon and evening hours, with the best chances occurring along and east of the Interstate 35 corridor. In addition, locally heavy rain could cause flooding in some areas. Severe weather should move east of the region around midnight Saturday night, but showers and occasional non-severe storms may continue overnight behind the front. Rain chances will come to an end Sunday morning, with cool and dry weather Sunday afternoon.
