A cluster of showers and thunderstorms is approaching the Red River this morning. The storms may track across parts of our northern counties with the best chances for rain extending from Sherman to Paris. Lightning and locally heavy rainfall will be the main threat.
Friday will be a hot day with high temperatures ranging from the mid 90s to around 100-101 degrees. Heat index values will be a few degrees higher at 100-107 degrees, but a 10-20 mph wind will provide a little relief. A few storms may move into North Texas today, and an isolated strong to severe storm is possible. Hail and damaging winds are the main hazards with isolated storms this afternoon.
A complex of storms will move across Oklahoma tonight and the southern edge of it could move across areas north of Interstate 20. Gusty winds will be possible. Otherwise expect a warm and muggy night with a 10 to 20 mph breeze.
Thunderstorms are expected to develop in the vicinity of a weak frontal boundary Saturday evening, progressing east to southeast to near the I-20 corridor Saturday night before dissipating during the overnight hours. A few of these storms may become severe, containing large hail and damaging winds. At this time it appears that the greatest severe risk will be either along the Red River or the northwestern counties. Stay tuned to your local forecast to get the latest weather updates as we head into the weekend.
High temperatures in the upper 90s to lower 100s are expected this weekend for much of the region. When combined with the humidity, heat index values may exceed 105 degrees during the afternoon in many locations. Remember to stay hydrated and take frequent breaks if planning outdoor activities.
