Mostly Cloudy and Very Humid Tonight, Windy and Quite Warm Monday

Scattered Showers and Thunderstorms Tuesday

Persistent southeasterly flow with a stable environment has trapped high levels of heat and humidity over the Crossroads late today. Temperatures in the upper 80s to lower 90s combine with the humidity to create heat index values near 100 degrees areawide. Those conditions will persist throughout the week ahead. A powerful spring storm system emerging from the Southern Rockies into the Southern Plains will induce a major severe weather outbreak Monday and Monday night from the Texas Panhandle through Oklahoma into Kansas, and later into North Central Texas. The Crossroads will remain partly cloudy on Monday, but the southern end of a line of showers and thunderstorms will sweep across our region on Tuesday, with no severe weather expected. The remainder of the week will feature mostly sunny days and fair to partly cloudy nights, with highs in the upper 80s to near 90. Lows remain in the middle 70s. Isolated showers and thunderstorms return for next Sunday.
