Severe Weather Outbreak Ahead
A severe weather outbreak appears likely tomorrow and Saturday in the Southern U.S. as a strong system works its way across the country.
There is an Enhanced Risk in place for south central parts of the country tomorrow. This includes Dallas, Waco, Austin, and Houston in Texas and and Shreveport and Alexandria in Louisiana. Much of southern Arkansas is also included in this risk area.
All modes of severe weather will be possible in these spots from tomorrow afternoon into the overnight hours.
Thunderstorms are expected to develop near or along a cold front swinging through the region. Convection is expected to quickly become linear. The QLCS is expected to race across Texas through the evening and then cross into the Arkansas/Louisiana areas overnight.
