National Weather Service United States Department of Commerce

Showers and storms are expected this afternoon and evening. Some of these storms will be capable of producing localized strong to severe wind gusts. The greatest thunderstorm coverage is expected along and west of I-35 and north of I-20. Locally heavy rainfall will also be possible with these slow-moving storms.
Additional showers and storms will remain possible overnight, mainly north of I-20. In addition, we'll be monitoring a decaying area of storms moving across the Rolling Plains. While this activity is expected to diminish in intensity, strong and gusty winds will be possible across some of our northwestern counties.
Scattered showers and thunderstorms will again develop mainly north of I-20 on Sunday well ahead of a cold front. Highs will top out in the 95-100 degree range. Any storms that develop could produce gusty winds and frequent lightning.
