Heavy Rain and Flash Flooding Possible Central Gulf Coast to the Southeast

Locally heavy rain will impact the central Gulf Coast to the Southeast today. Several inches of rain could fall in just a few hours. Severe thunderstorms with damaging winds and hail are possible in the Southeast and south Texas. Strong winds are expected in parts of Montana while near record warmth will increase snowmelt from streams and rivers flowing off the Sierra. Read More >

Scattered showers and thunderstorms will occur again today. A few strong to severe thunderstorms are expected mainly southeast of a Paris to Goldthwaite line. Hail up to 1 inch in diameter and wind gusts to 60 mph will be possible with these storms.
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.
