Tuesday was another cloudy and rainy day. Temperatures were rather chilly as readings were fairly steady in the 40s. The main upper-level disturbance will move across the ArkLaTex Tuesday night and Wednesday. Look for showers and a few thunderstorms to increase over te area late Tuesday night. This activity will move across our area Wednesday morning and move out of the region Wednesday afternoon. The Storm Prediction Center indicates that we will have to watch the eastern edge of the area where temperatures could be a bit warmer. Here is where a strong to severe storm could occur. Severe weather will not be a concern for most of the area. The main concern will be the threat for heavy rain. Models still show that another two to four inches of rain can be expected over most of our area. This includes the rain that has fallen today. The National Weather Service has now expanded the Flash Flood Watch to include the entire ArkLaTex.

We will likely continue to see clouds Wednesday night into much of Thursday. The clouds should decrease from west to east late Thursday morning and Thursday afternoon. It now appears that the drier weather pattern could linger through the weekend. There is a slight chance that we could see a little bit of rain Saturday and Sunday, but most of the rain will hold off until next week. Temperatures will stay below normal through Friday with highs in the low to mid-50s. A warming trend will then settle in for the weekend with highs Saturday in the low to mid-60s and highs Sunday in the 65 to 70-degree range.

We will then settle back into a rather wet weather pattern for the first half of next week. Showers and a few thunderstorms should be expected from Monday through at least Wednesday. Some models keep the threat of rain in our forecast through at least Thursday. Next week will begin with above normal temperatures. Highs Monday and Tuesday will be in the 60s and 70s. We will then cool down again by next Wednesday.
