  • While strong to severe thunderstorms will be possible across all but the southwest half of Northeast Texas today, the threat will be mainly during the morning across the remainder of Northeast Texas, Southeast Oklahoma, much of Southwest Arkansas and far West and Northwest Louisiana.
  •  The severe thunderstorm threat may become more heightened across portions of South Central Arkansas as well as North Central and Northeast Louisiana this afternoon with the aid of daytime heating.
