The same upper level low pressure system that caused that weather is still here today, but it has weakened a bit. Highs will still be in the mid-to-upper 80s. Favorable rain chances will lie around and east of the Central Mountains, however, isolated to spotty storms can't be ruled out elsewhere. We've dropped Sunday's rain chance completely - expect "mostly sunny" skies to end the first week of June 2017.

The storms will wind down Friday evening, with still cloudy skies and lows in the low to mid 70s. A shortwave of energy coming out of New Mexico might be enough to get scattered showers and thunderstorms to develop across the area tomorrow afternoon and evening. We'll be dry for the middle of the week with highs in the low/mid 80s. "We could pick up 1-3" in a few areas, so watch out for street flooding and flooding in other low-lying areas.

Pretty much all of the Arklatex had some scattered showers or t'storms today.

Thursday night will continue to be soggy with spotty showers and thunderstorms. Winds E 5-10 miles per hour. Despite some additional cloud cover and that 30% for rain on Saturday, highs will likely hangout in the lower 80s. Temperatures will still be rather warm with highs near 86° and heat indices in the lower 90s.
