The first sign of an evolving storm will show itself into the first part of this weekend, and the primary threat will be tied to heavy rain and thunderstorms potentially causing flooding along the western Gulf coast:
A storm system continues to spread precipitation along the gulf coast resulting in plenty of cloud cover over southern Arkansas. Skies are starting to clear across the north as the system pulls out and clouds will be decreasing elsewhere with time. #arwx
Skies to continue to clear as a storm system moves along the gulf coast. This trend will continue through the night with mainly clear skies expected by morning. #arwx
There is a marginal risk of severe weather across portions of the western Gulf Coast. A brief tornado or two, damaging wind gusts, and isolated hail will be possible with these storms. Please see for more information. #Txwx #Lawx #MSwx #Alwx
Another round of showers and storms spreads eastward over the central Gulf coast this afternoon and evening. A few strong to perhaps severe storms are possible.

California is on fire. Once in a lifetime hurricanes are sweeping the Gulf Coast. The Arctic topped 100 degrees. The future of our planet is at stake this election. We can no longer have a president in office who rejects science and calls climate change a hoax. #GreenNewDeal
