Increasing Risk for Flash and River Flooding Through the Weekend

A storm system will track across the central U.S. and set the stage for severe thunderstorms and widespread heavy rainfall through the weekend. There will be a threat for flash and river flooding for portions of the Southern Plains into the Upper Midwest. Read More >

There is a chance of showers and thunderstorms during the overnight hours. Low temperatures will be quite warm with values in the upper 60s to mid 70s. Winds will be out of the south at 10 to 20 mph with some gusts over 25 mph possible. If storms develop, some could become severe across the areas mainly north of I-20 producing large hail, brief heavy rain and cloud to ground lightning.
Storm chances will increase through the day Saturday as a cold front advances southeast. A complex of storms will move in to the northwestern counties in the morning, setting the stage to what will be an active weather day across North and Central Texas. By the late morning, early afternoon, scattered showers and storms will develop along and behind the cold front. The main threats with the storms behind the front will be large hail. Any storm that forms along and ahead of the front will have a hail, damaging wind, and low tornado threat.
Some lingering thunderstorms are possible Sunday morning along and east of a Bonham to Centerville line; otherwise, expect decreasing cloudiness and cooler weather with highs in the 60s. Winds will be westerly at 15 to 25 mph. Dry weather is expected Sunday night through Tuesday. After a cool night Sunday night with lows in the 40s, a warming trend will start. Highs will be in the mid 70s to lower 80s Monday and upper 70s to mid 80s Tuesday. Rain chances will return Tuesday night and end from the northwest late Wednesday afternoon through Wednesday evening. Highs on Wednesday will be in the 70s to lower 80s.
