WICHITA FALLS, Texas (KAUZ) - Watch out for severe storms will very large hail and high winds for the next couple of days.

Severe storms will exit Texoma by midnight, but winds behind the rain will remain gusty, approaching 55 mph at times. Minor damage and brief power outages will be possible. As the wind relaxes and the clouds clear for the rest of the night, we’ll see just a few clouds and lows in the mid 60s through sunrise.

Another round of isolated storms will spring up in the heat of Sunday afternoon. Another day in the low to mid 90s will develop a few stray storms later in the day. Hail and high winds will once again be the primary threats. An even small storm threat is possible on Monday with highs even hotter in the mid to upper 90s.

The trend for more isolated, pop-up storms continues on through the middle of the week as several weak system pass through Texoma. We’ll be in the low to mid 90s on Tuesday and dip down into the mid and upper 80s in the wake a of weak cold front and some extra clouds.

Our next best chance for rain and storms develops along a stronger cold front late Friday into Saturday. We’ll be near 90 degrees with a 60% chance at storms to close the week then continue with isolated showers and storms Saturday as highs dip down into the mid 70s.
