Rain, Possible Severe Storms this Weekend

It will be windy, with a risk of stronger winds with the storms.

A Wind Advisory Remains in effect until 7:00 PM CDT for Briscoe, Childress, Cottle, Crosby, Dickens, Floyd, Hall, Kent, King, Motley, Stonewall and Swisher County.

The threat of severe weather and storms should end quickly early tomorrow afternoon, with cloudy skies accompanied by temperatures holding mostly in the 60s, possibly clearing just in time for sunset. Upper 60s and lower 70s return Friday through the weekend.

A line of thunderstorms will move in to western Southwest Georgia Sunday morning, continuing to move east throughout the morning into the afternoon. Temperatures will then trend warmer all the way into Wednesday, with Wednesday being our warmest day, with highs back in the low 80s, but conditions will remain comfortable. There is a slight chance for storms Thursday evening along the Texas/New Mexico state line. We'll keep an eye on things.

The timing of the severe weather is between the afternoon and 10 p.m., Live 5 Chief Meteorologist Bill Walsh said.

We will continue to update this story as the forecast changes. We're also some exceptional drought now over a small portion of King and Cottle County.

Sunset: 8:13 p.m.

Rough chop on area lakes is expected, which will make boating very hazardous. The wind will decrease to 5-10 miles per hour overnight.

Severe weather quickly pushes offshore on Sunday evening and quiet, cooler weather filters in tonight. The northwest winds are bringing the smell of smoke from wildfires in Oklahoma.

Skies will certainly clear Saturday night with breezy and sharply cooler conditions likely through Sunday morning. South winds 10 to 15 mph with gusts up to 25 mph, increasing to 15 to 25 mph with gusts up to 35 mph in the afternoon.
