Hmm. Good morning, Red River Valley!

It looks like we're going to start the day off with a bang — the National Weather Service had issued a Severe Thunderstorm Watch this morning for Fannin, Delta, Lamar, and Choctaw counties, in effect through 6 a.m. That watch was canceled at around 3:40 a.m. as an incoming storm from the west lost strength.

It's right around 78 degrees as we get going this morning. It won't warm up too, too much, leaving us with a cloudy, 85 degree Sunday. Storms, if we do see them, have a slight potential to become severe, with damaging winds as the main threat. Winds will be from the south southwest 10 to 15 mph, with gusts as high as 20.

As we get into this evening, showers and thunderstorms become likely, mainly after 7 p.m. These storms also have the chance to become severe, and they are expected to produce heavy rain, up to between 1 and 2 inches. Otherwise, we'll be cloudy with a low around 69. The wind will continue from the southeast 10 to 15 mph.

Afterwards, we're looking at storm chances every day of the week. 

We'll keep you up-to-date with any watches and warnings the National Weather Service issues. 

Have a great Sunday!
