Severe weather looking unlikely
Upper wave could lead to t-storms in the South Friday

Our upper level wave will start to approach our area and change things up for Friday. As it works in, most of the area will have a cold rain to start the day. Through the afternoon and evening, some areas north of Joplin could see things start to switch over to snow.

The farther south you go, snow isn’t the concern for parts of the Southern Plains. With the wave having better access to instability, shear and cooler air aloft, that will mean t-storm chances for parts of Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana.

There won’t be a whole lot of instability for that area to work with. Thankfully, that means severe weather is looking very unlikely. With some of the stronger t-storms, though, we can’t rule out some gusty winds and a few hailstones.
