Showers and storms have been hugging the Red River mainly west of Gainesville Tuesday evening.  There is a cold front moving slowly southward approaching the Red River.  That has been the focus point for thunderstorms Tuesday.  This front will continue to sage southward overnight and tomorrow.  By tomorrow afternoon it will likely be positioned just north of the Metroplex.  This will lead to a few scattered showers and thunderstorms during the day on Wednesday.


Below is a forecast model’s interpretation of where the rain will be located over the next 48 hours.

Wed 2am – Isolated showers.
