Severe weather update for the Ark-la-Tex

    Severe weather expected this afternoon and this evening - large hail and isolated tornadoes are a possibility. Damaging winds starting before the storm prompting a lake wind advisory until 1 am Saturday morning.

    Showers and thunderstorms will increase across East Texas,
    Southeast Oklahoma, Southwest Arkansas and Western Louisiana this
    afternoon, ahead of a strong upper level storm system and
    associated dryline as they move across Oklahoma and North Texas.
    These showers and thunderstorms are expected to intensify this
    afternoon and evening as instability increases ahead of this storm
    system, with some of these storms possibly becoming severe.
    Damaging winds, large hail, isolated tornadoes, and locally heavy
    rainfall will be possible, with this threat spreading east into
    the remainder of North Louisiana and Southcentral Arkansas this
    evening before weakening late. In addition, a tight pressure
    gradient ahead of this storm system will result in strong
    southerly winds of 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 35 mph areawide
    today through this evening. Thus, a Lake Wind Advisory is in
    effect areawide before the winds weaken with the passage of these
    thunderstorms this evening.
