Hit and miss thunderstorms possible Thursday afternoon, evening

WICHITA FALLS, Texas (TNN) - Thunderstorms, strong enough to prompt warnings, swept across western Oklahoma and the Texas Panhandle overnight. Despite their southerly drift, rain probably won’t make it to north Texas. We’ll keep rain in today’s forecast though based on the chance that the complex of overnight storms left behind outflow boundaries. After Wichita Falls’ first one hundred degree day Wednesday, today will be cooler with a northeast breeze. Highs will be in the low and mid 90s.

Our weather will be fairly quiet into the weekend with mostly sunny skies, light northeast winds and highs in the mid 90s. To our east toward Louisiana a tropical storm named Barry will push north out of the Gulf, bringing a serious threat of flooding to Louisiana and east Texas Saturday and Sunday. Persons traveling in that area should check ahead for road conditions.
