It will be mostly cloudy Sunday and Sunday night with a chance of showers and thunderstorms. A few storms could be strong to severe late afternoon into the evening. Highs will range from the upper 70s northeast to near 90 degrees northwest. Lows Sunday night will be in upper 50s northeast to the upper 60s southeast.
A slow-moving upper trough over the Rockies and Four Corners area will provide multiple storm chances back to the area at least the first half of the week. A surface dryline and eventual cold will also play a role for the development of showers and thunderstorms. However, with this system a week away, many details regarding storm track, timing, and thunderstorm development/severe weather potential remain HIGHLY UNCERTAIN. Continue to monitor future forecasts regarding next week.
We will have a SKYWARN Basic Class on Thursday, March 22nd in Gun Barrel City (Henderson County). The class will be from 7 pm to 9 pm. Classes are free and registration is not required! We hope to see you there!
