There are possibilities for thunderstorms containing one inch or larger hail and or winds gusting at least 58 miles per hour (50 knots).
Weather conditions could develop "dangerous thunderstorms" capable of producing strong winds and heavy rain, according to a release from Environment Canada.
The National Weather Service has issued a severe thunderstorm watch in effect until 9 p.m. Saturday for 27 counties including Lancaster. Partly sunny. 70% chance of scattered showers and storms. It will be warm and very humid with a chance of thunderstorms developing. There is a chance of showers and thunderstorms Tuesday and Wednesday. The severe weather threat will be highest along the Red River in Texas/Oklahoma, but storms will be capable of high wind throughout southern Arkansas as well. Just as Friday, any storms could be strong to severe. Monday's high will be near 84 degrees, with a low around 60 degrees.
More areas in Alabama will have a marginal risk today as well.
We begin next week cooler and drier with a comfy start Monday morning, then a nice, summer afternoon with highs back into the mid-80s.
