Weather Week Ahead: Lots of clouds and rain

Expect up and down temperatures

Cloudy and rainy weather pattern to continue this week.  Several inches of rain possible in spots with roller coaster temperatures.

Rain returned to most of the Arklatex Tuesday and will likely stay in the forecast off and on through most of the week ahead.  Temperatures Tuesday stayed rather cool with highs in the 40s over most of the area.  That will rapidly change Wednesday and Thursday as warmer air surges northward.  Look for Tuesday night temperatures to remain steady or slowly rise with readings in the upper 40s to low 50s over most of the area by morning.  That rise in temperatures will continue through Thursday.  We'll see highs Wednesday in the 60s.  Highs Thursday will soar well into the 70s.  Rainfall chances will begin to decrease Wednesday as the warmer air arrives.  Rain will be rather isolated Thursday as we could see a few peeks of sunshine Thursday afternoon.

Another strong cold front will arrive very early Friday.  This front will bring the return of the chilly air.  Highs Friday will likely be in the morning.  Temperatures will likely drop into the 40s and 50s during the day. Look for another good shot at rain once the colder temperatures arrive. That decent chance for rain will continue Saturday as daytime highs will likely stay in the 40s.

Warmer air will again surge northward Sunday and Monday.  This will result in the continued chance for rain through the middle of next week. Look for highs Sunday to return to the 60s.  We'll see highs in the 70s for the first half of next week.  Models indicate that we could see some decent rainfall totals.  If you add up all the rain that we see during the next seven days, we could see one to over four inches in spots with the heaviest totals over the northern quarter of the area in SE OK and SW AR.  The good news is that even with all of this rain,  severe weather chances look to be very very low.

Average High/Low for today's date: 61/39.
