Weekend Severe Threat
A system moving through Texas will fire off storms in the afternoon Saturday, some of which may be capable of producing severe wind and hail into the evening hours.
Forecast model shows area of low pressure moving across Texas and Oklahoma. This will trigger storms and bring in much cooler. Storms fire near the Dallas area by the dinner hour.
This system will continue to track eastward and spread rain across the Southeast and potentially additional thunderstorm activity. Map shows projected rainfall totals through Monday morning.
On the north side, the colder air will change the precipitation over to snow so accumulations are possible from the Ohio River Valley into the Mid Atlantic. Map shows projected accumulations through Monday.
The Midwest still stays mild for yet another day before cooler air returns tomorrow. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible in Arizona and New Mexico today. More snow and rain expected in the Northwest as well. After a cool start to the day in the Southeast and Mid Atlantic, warmer air builds in this afternoon but it will continue to be very windy and dry.
