Scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms will continue this morning with the best chances across the southeast. Locally heavy rainfall, small hail, and cloud to ground lightning are all possible with the strongest storms. There will be a decrease in activity this afternoon, but we will be watching for strong to possibly severe storms to move from the Texas Panhandle late this afternoon. The northwest sections of North Texas should be the first to see these storms as early as late this afternoon , but more likely this evening.
It looks like the weather pattern favors rain chances to be in place over the Memorial Day Weekend. Long range model guidance suggest a few shortwave disturbances moving from the southwest to northeast across the area during the weekend and into early next week. Likely won't rain the entire weekend but details and timing of the forecast will be refined this week. High temperatures will stay in the upper 80s to lower 90s. Low temperatures will be in upper 60s and lower 70s. Stay Tuned!
