We will see plenty of sun on Sunday, but it will be windy and MUCH COOLER! Warmer temperatures in the 50s through northern Wyoming could even initiate an afternoon thunderstorm.

A very strong storm system is forecast to produce many severe storms across the Ark-La-Tex Friday afternoon and evening, then the mid-south into Saturday. Once the fog does clear, skies will be partly to mostly sunny. South breezes will continue to favor warm temperatures in the mid 70s near the coast to near 80 elsewhere.

This heat and humidity is being pumped up ahead of a strong frontal boundary moving in for the weekend.
