April showers are moving through parts of the state right now. It’s a sign of things to come. This week will be unsettled with periods of showers and thunderstorms today through Thursday. The severe weather risk is rather low, although a gusty thunderstorm can’t be ruled out at just about any time. A greater risk will be heavy rain. Parts of the state could have more than 4 inches of rain over the next several days.
Our rain will be caused by a series of upper level storm systems that will move slowly through the southern Plains. Right now Friday looks dry, but more showers and storms will again be possible over the weekend into next week.
