Today and tonight
Scattered to numerous showers, mainly across Northeast Texas, Southeast Oklahoma, Southwest Arkansas, and extreme Northwest Louisiana, will be available today through tonight. Some of this rainfall could sometimes be heavy, especially across portions of Northeast Texas. NWS is not forecasting any severe weather at this time.
Saturday through Thursday
Showers and thunderstorm chances will continue into the weekend ahead of a solid cold front poised to move into the region during the day on Sunday. At this time, instability does not warrant a widespread severe thunderstorm threat. Areas of prolonged heavy rainfall may result in flash flooding, mainly along and north of the I-30 corridor. The rain will likely only end across the Four-State Region sometime during the day on Tuesday.
