We are watching West Texas storms once again this evening and as they fire up they will march eastward. We are also tracking a front to our north that has showers and storms along it, with some severe storms along both lines. We expect to see showers and storms move in from the north and from the west this evening and tonight, but one of the biggest questions in the forecast is: will they reach us? These storms will have the potential to become strong to severe, mainly to our north, with damaging winds and heavy rain being the main concerns. For us, we should see most of the activity become weaker as it moves our way, but what happens tonight will greatly impact rain and storm chances for tomorrow.

We’re anticipating rain at some point during the day on Friday, most likely during the afternoon and at night, but a lot of question marks remain about when the rain will move in, how strong storms may be, and when the rain may move out. Cold front to our north will be pushed south along with the complex of storms but there is uncertainty on how far south the front will be pushed and stalled. If storms are able to develop tomorrow afternoon, large hail and damaging winds will be possible. A more localized tornado threat may also exist near the front.

Showers and storms are possible throughout Memorial Day weekend although most of Saturday and Sunday look to be dry. A few afternoon showers and weather thunderstorms are possible in the afternoons, with Sunday looking like the best outdoors weather day of the weekend. Rain chances start to increase late in the day Monday and last through all of next week. With rain back in the forecast, expect things to stay a little cooler with highs in the 70s and 80s and lows in the 50s to 70s.
