.DISCUSSION...
Surface high pressure bringing fairly light winds today to shift
east allowing for a return southerly flow of gulf moisture through
the end of the work week. Overnight low temperatures forecast to
fall into the upper 50s to lower 60s tonight. A warm front will
shift north into central Oklahoma and Arkansas on Friday allowing
for much warmer temperatures across the ArkLaTex with highs
forecast to climb into the 80s. The warm front will will serve as
the focus for convection on Friday night across mainly the
interstate 30 corridor. Severe risk, although possible, will be
limited due to the proximity of the front to the north. However an
isolated threat of severe thunderstorms will be possible in the
form of discreet supercells with a hail, damaging wind, and
tornado threat possible on Friday night.

Conditions to continue to deteriorate across the ArkLaTex through
the weekend. The ongoing severe thunderstorm threat across
Interstate 30 corridor will spread south and east across the
entire region while a flash flood threat will increase north of
the Interstate 20 corridor. Periods of heavy rain will be possible
across the entire ArkLaTex on Saturday and Sunday. This is the
result of a cold front that will move east across the ArkLaTex in
a region rich in moisture. The strongest storms will be along the
cold front with hail, damaging winds, and an isolated tornado
threat possible. Rainfall totals of up to 5 inches may be possible
across the Interstate 30 corridor with 1 to 3 inches possible
across the remainder of the ArkLaTex through Sunday evening. Will
likely issue a flash flood watch within the next 24 hours in
advance of the event.

Conditions to improve behind the cold front on Sunday night as
surface high pressure rebuilds across the region. Temperatures
through much of next week to range from highs in the 70s to lows
in the 50s. Another frontal boundary will move across the region
on Wednesday afternoon and evening bringing another chance for
strong thunderstorms. /05/
