Severe thunderstorms likely from the Midwest to the Mississippi Valley

Severe thunderstorms capable of producing damaging winds, very large hail, and a few strong tornadoes are likely today and tonight from the Midwest to the lower Mississippi Valley region. Some of the storms could produce heavy rainfall and flooding of low lying areas. Read More >

Temperatures are expected to fall into the 40s tonight due to a cold front that passed through our region on Tuesday. Winds will be from the northwest 20-25 mph, but are expected to become variable and light after midnight.
Mostly sunny conditions on Thursday after some patchy morning fog burns off. Breezy south winds of 15 mph with gusts to around 25 mph are expected as high temperatures warm into the upper 70s to the northeast, and upper 80s across the western counties.
Our active spring weather pattern will continue into the weekend, with another risk for severe thunderstorms expected Friday afternoon through Saturday night. Multiple rounds of strong to severe thunderstorms are likely to develop during this period. On Friday, the threat for severe thunderstorms is expected to be "conditional". That is, we are uncertain whether thunderstorms will develop at all, but if they do develop, they will likely become severe. Any storms that develop on Friday should remain isolated. All modes of severe weather (tornadoes, hail, and damaging wind) will be possible, with hail being the greatest threat as a few storms could produce hail larger than two inches in diameter. On Saturday, the threat is expected to be more widespread. Hail, damaging winds, tornadoes, and flash flooding will all be concerns, with the heaviest rains likely north of Interstate 20, and east of Interstate 35 where two to four inches of rain will be likely. Locally higher amounts in excess of six inches will be possible in some locations. There remains some uncertainty regarding the exact timing and location of the individual rounds of thunderstorms, as well as the severity of potential flash flooding impacts. Interests in North and Central Texas are advised to monitor the latest weather forecasts as we approach the end of the work week and head into the weekend.
