Temperatures will be above normal tonight as abundant Gulf moisture surges north across the region. Overnight lows will be mainly in the 65 to 70 degree range. There is a 30% chance of showers along the Red River and also across the southeast counties. The rest of the region will see a 20% chance of rain.
We'll have mostly cloudy skies Saturday. Some showers are possible in the morning southeast of a Lampasas to Paris line. Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible during the afternoon. IF the cap breaks, a few storms could become severe producing hail larger than 1 inch in diameter and wind gusts over 60 mph. Otherwise, cloud to ground lightning will accompany any storms that develop.
Rich Gulf moisture will continue pouring into North and Central Texas into the weekend. Saturday will begin with cloudy skies, but the sun will emerge as the day progresses, particularly west of the I-35 corridor. A capping inversion may prevent thunderstorm development, but with considerable instability, any storm that develops may quickly become severe. More widespread storms are expected Saturday night as a cold front moves through the region. Damaging winds will be the primary hazard with the line of storms that accompanies the front, but large hail and tornadoes will be possible with any discrete cells. A brief tornado could also occur within the line, but since these nocturnal spin-ups are often obscured by rain, they would be difficult for spotters to observe. The severe weather threat will diminish early Sunday morning as the storms move into Central and East Texas. Skies will clear on Sunday, and temperatures will reach the 70s Sunday afternoon with lower humidity. However, the gusty north winds behind the front will make it feel cooler.
