A developing storm system over the Southern Plains will move eastward through the Mississippi Valley over the next several days. Copious amounts of deep moisture combined with Friday's warm front moving slowly north across the area followed by an eastward trailing trough Friday evening and Saturday morning will lead to heavy rains...especially across interior Southeast Texas and central Louisiana. Rain should end Saturday morning.
A warm front and associated low pressure center to our north combined with ample Gulf moisture overhead will produce widespread showers and thunderstorms across the region today. Some storms could become severe through the afternoon, especially along and north of I-10 where an Enhanced Risk is in place. Best chance of rain looks to develop through the afternoon and evening hours. Gusty, damaging winds in upwards of 30 kts, large hail, and isolated tornadoes will all be possible.
An elevated chance of showers and thunderstorms will continue into tonight, as a frontal system moves across the lower MS Valley. Rain chances will begin to taper off around midnight and through the early morning hours. Some storms could be severe before then. South winds will begin to shift to the southwest overnight, while remaining near 5-15 MPH with gusts to 30 MPH possible.
Skies will clear from west to east through the morning, becoming mostly sunny by the afternoon. A dry cold front will move across the region through the afternoon, shifting winds from the southwest to northwest and bringing some drier air into the region for the second half of the weekend. Highs will warm into the mid 70s to mid 80s tomorrow.
