Thunderstorms will gradually increase in coverage mid morning through early afternoon with severe thunderstorms expected to move in during the mid to late afternoon through evening hours as a potent atmospheric disturbance approaches. Damaging winds are expected to be the primary risk as one or two squall lines move through although large hail and tornadoes will also be possible, especially with any isolated severe thunderstorms that develop away from squall line activity. Locally heavy rain amounts of a few inches within an hour`s time may also lead to isolated and mainly minor flooding issues. Expect the severe weather risk to begin to diminish late tonight as the bulk of thunderstorms begins shifting to the east and instability wanes. Days two through seven. Sunday through Friday. Widely scattered thunderstorms remain possible during day Sunday and also during the day Monday. However, the threat for severe thunderstorms over this time period should be low. The risk for strong to severe storms will return to at least the northwestern half of the Four State Region on Tuesday as another potent disturbance brushes by the region. Initial thinking is damaging winds will be the primary risk with this activity, although hail and a few tornadoes cannot yet be ruled out, especially across portions of the Arklatex. Spotter information statement. Activation of emergency management personnel, amateur radio operators, and storm spotters will likely be needed this afternoon into this evening.
