Watching For Possible Severe Thunderstorms This Weekend
Another cloudy, foggy start to the day…but the difference today will be that the sun will make an appearance. A warm front will be sliding through the area and the resulting south wind will get temperatures into the 80s this afternoon. It will definitely be a warm, breezy and humid afternoon. Ditto for Friday.
By the weekend, an upper level storm, still over California now, will zip across the middle of the U.S. It will help drag a cold front into North Texas during the afternoon and evening Saturday.
There will be enough instability and lift for thunderstorms to form along this front. Our western counties will see storms during the afternoon & early evening. The rest of us will see a line of storms plow through late evening into the overnight hours Saturday night.
Some of the storms could turn severe with high winds and larger hail the biggest threats. We can rule out a few tornadoes within the expected line of thunderstorms. Although the best chances for that will be in Oklahoma, Kansas and Missouri. The Metroplex and the northern half of North Texas are under a SLIGHT RISK for severe weather Saturday afternoon into Saturday night.
Storms should exit the area by Sunday morning, leaving us with a decent end to the weekend. Temperatures stay warm, 5 to 10 degrees above average, through the middle of next week.
Chief Meteorologist Larry Mowry will have the latest storm timeline today at 4, 5, 6, and 10p on CBS11.
