Severe storms possible in advance of arctic cold front coming to region

January 18th, 2019 by Lori Dunn in Texarkana News

A few severe storms are possible today in advance of a strong arctic cold front approaching the region.

Showers and thunderstorms will increase tonight into early Saturday, according to the National Weather Service in Shreveport, La.

The hazardous weather outlook includes Bowie and Miller counties along with Cass, Titus and Morris counties in Northeast Texas and Sevier, Howard, Little River, Hempstead, Nevada and Lafayette in Southwest Ark.

A few strong to severe storms will be possible during this period, especially across East Texas.

The main threat will be large hail. Rainfall totals up to two inches will be possible with this system, which could lead to

minor localized flooding. However, widespread flash flooding is not expected at this time, as this system will move through the region quickly, according to NWS.

A slight chance for a rain and snow mix will be possible north of Interstate 30, late Saturday morning and afternoon, but no travel impacts are expected at this time. Low temperatures are expected to be in the mid-20s in some areas Saturday. Very cold and windy conditions are expected Saturday afternoon and evening behind the cold front, with wind gusts up to 30 mph or higher possible before subsiding Sunday.

Rainfall chances will return during the middle of next week as another cold front approaches the region.
