Please review your severe weather plan and download the WMC Weather app for up to the minute updates.

Friday night into Saturday morning temperatures will likely remain in the 60s and 70s as a warm and unstable airmass is in place.

"We have the storm ready signs at every main road coming into the county line coming into Jones county", McMichael said. That highlights an area that is favorable for severe weather to develop during the day, or over the next few days. A strong south wind ahead of the approaching storm system may lead to discrete thunderstorm development during the morning hours.

Even though our risk for severe weather is on the low end, we will still have to pay attention to the weather throughout the day since this will be our first severe weather threat of the new year. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed.

"Heavy downpours - capable of producing 3" to 4" of rain or more in just a handful of hours - are all too frequent for WAFB communities. This means that there will be numerous severe thunderstorms as a cold front moves through the area.All modes of severe weather are possible including damaging wind, hail and tornadoes. As of now all counties/parishes north of I-20 remain in a Flash Flood Watch through Saturday evening. We may see a few more showers across the southern half of the ArkLaTex on Sunday. Locally heavy rainfall may occur at times with an additional one to two inches of rain possible before daybreak.
