LOOKING AHEAD: A weak front will move in starting early Wednesday morning. First round of showers will develop northwest of the ArkLaMiss around Texarkana. Throughout the morning, storm activity will become more widespread into the afternoon. There is a small risk for severe weather, with a few thunderstorms producing some strong winds, localized heavy rainfall, and frequent cloud-to-ground lightning.
Conditions will start to clear up late Wednesday into Thursday. For the rest of the work week, it will be drier with highs remaining hot in the mid to upper 90s with plenty of sunshine.
Have a great Tuesday!
