Stormy night ahead, but severe weather not expected

Quick post on the likelihood of storms tonight. A cold front will approach the region and generate an area of thunderstorms that will move out of central TX across southern AR/northern LA and into MS overnight. Meanwhile, additional showers and t'storms are likely further north ahead of the front as well.

Amongst all of this activity, we are left with a high likelihood of rain and thunderstorms overnight.  Most of the rain will fall after dark, with the heaviest activity after midnight.  Some heavy rain is likely and a strong wind gust is possible, though SPC (and we agree) thinks that any severe weather should stay to our southwest.  Just don't be surprised if thunder wakes you (or your pet) up tonight!

A Slight Risk of severe weather is posted for areas SW of the metro as a cold front approaches

Showers and t'storms will continue to be possible throughout the day Friday, though the heaviest rain and most concentrated activity should move out by mid-morning. Don't make a lot of outdoor plans that are weather-sensitive on Friday however! We'll keep you apprised via our social platforms, listed below.
