A tight pressure gradient across the Southern Plains today will result in south winds increasing to 15 to 20 mph with higher gusts approaching 35 mph across a few locations this afternoon. Winds will begin reaching criteria by late morning and will continue through early evening. Boaters should exercise caution on area lakes and waterways due to rough chop conditions which can capsize small craft. East and West bound high profile vehicles will be affected by the winds and should be alert for sudden high wind gusts.
Sunny skies will dominate the region today but it will become breezy across some locations as south winds return to the area. This will allow afternoon temperatures to warm well into the 80s today which is a 30 to 40 degree warm-up from morning lows across the Four State Region. It will be warmer overnight with clouds returning to portions of the region. Overnight lows tonight will only fall into the middle 60s to the lower 70s.
Strong to Severe Thunderstorms will be possible across the Enhanced and Slight Risk areas Saturday Evening into the Overnight hours as an upper level disturbance approached the region from the west. Large hail, damaging thunderstorm wind gusts and isolated tornadoes will be possible across these regions during the evening and overnight hours on Saturday.
