FRIDAY: Expect variably to mostly cloudy skies as a warm front moves northward through the afternoon hours. Along the front – scattered showers and storms will be possible – a strong storm can’t be ruled out the front makes progress northward. Highs will top out in the upper 70s and lower 80s. Storm chances will remain elevated into Friday evening north of I-20 before diminishing – lows fall back into the 60s.
SATURDAY: A strong cold front will approach the region as we move through the latter half of the day – expect scattered showers, storms to flare up ahead of the main line of storms through the afternoon hours. Highs will still manage the lower 80s. After sunset, a squall line will move through the region into the overnight hours; along this line, strong wind, hail and spin-up tornado threats will exist. Stay weather aware during this time.
SUNDAY: The severe weather threat will lessen into Sunday morning; though the showers and storms may linger throughout the day as the cold front hangs up nearby. Highs will stay in the 60s through the afternoon hours. The front begins to make progress eastward overnight, eventually shutting off rain chances through early Monday morning.
NEXT WEEK: High pressure will build in for a brief stint for Monday and Tuesday, bringing with it sunshine and highs in the lower 70s. A chance for showers will re-emerge late Tuesday as another system burgeons from the south – bringing a heightened chance of storms Wednesday and Thursday before clearing out into Friday.
