We are watching the potential for strong to severe thunderstorms by Sunday afternoon and evening for parts of Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Arkansas.

Severe Outlook

The Storm Prediction Center has a Marginal Risk of severe weather over this region for Sunday into Monday.  A marginal risk means that isolated strong storms are possible and a few of those storms could turn severe.

Severe Weather Set-Up

  A high pressure system moving east will allow Gulf moisture to increase of the south over the weekend. Warm temperatures and high humidity will lead to instability in the atmosphere over the Ark-La-Tx.  As a dry line moves into the region out of the west, showers and storms should fire up during the afternoon and evening on Sunday.  Some of these storms could be strong with heavy rain, hail and strong winds.

Forecast

Here is a look at the latest forecast.

Rainfall Potential

There could be some heavy rainfall in eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas.  The latest forecast is showing the potential for 1-3 inches in these areas.   Meteorologist Patrick Craword
