Tropical Storm Nate: Little impact on the Arklatex

Change in next week's 'cool' down

Tropical Storm Nate expected to become a hurricane.  Don't expect much impact in the Arklatex.  Front arrives early next week.  Not looking as cool as previously thought behind it.

Thursday brought lots of sunshine to the Arklatex with above normal temperatures again.  Daytime highs soared into the upper 80s to low 90s.  Expect much of the same Friday.  We will likely close the work week with plenty of sunshine and very warm temperatures.  Look for highs in the upper 80s to low 90s.  Overnight lows Friday morning will be in the low to mid 60s.  Clouds will be on the increase Friday night and Saturday thanks to what is expected to become hurricane Nate.

Nate is expected to make landfall early Sunday over the SE coast of Louisiana near New Orleans.  Models are showing much more agreement today compared to yesterday.  That means that we probably won't see much more change in the projection of Nate's path.  If Nate does move over SE LA, its impact on our weather will be minimal.  We'll see an increase in clouds this weekend and could see some rain mainly over N LA and S AR east of Shreveport and Texarkana.  I really don't expect much rain at this point with amounts probably less than 1/2".  We also won't experience much wind nor much of a severe weather threat being on the west side of Nate's circulation.

Once Nate rapidly moves out Sunday, we will begin to watch a cold front that will move in Monday night or Tuesday morning.  This front is not expected to bring much rain.  We have also seen a change in the models on how much cooler we get behind the front.  As of right now, expect lows to dip into the upper 50s to low 60s.  Highs will fall into the upper 70s to low 80s.  We will likely begin to warm up again late next week.  Stay Tuned!

Average high/low for today's date: 82/58.
