Still no change in temperatures for the next week with our next best hope for rain next Friday

Weather

Our typical summertime weather pattern has settled in and is here to stay. You will probably have to wait until the end of next week to see any hope of rain, but don’t expect much.

Friday was another day of sunshine around the ArkLaTex with near-normal temperatures. It still looks like we will not see any significant change in our weather for at least the next week. Look for a mix of sunshine and clouds as we go through the weekend. Daytime highs will stay in the middle 90s. Overnight lows will be in the middle 70s. Both are pretty close to what is typical for this time of year. I wouldn’t expect to see much of any rain this weekend. Keep in mind that if you have some outdoor plans, you will need to take it easy in the heat. Heat Index values will stay in the 100 to 105 degree range.

The upper-level area of high pressure that has produced our recent hot and dry weather pattern isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. It will continue to sit over the southern half of the country through the next week. It still appears that we will see a weakness develop within this ridge that will allow the chance for a few scattered showers and thunderstorms to increase for the end of next week. Right now, it appears that rain chances might be highest next Friday. Because of the potential for added clouds and some rain we might end next week with highs in the lower 90s. Until then, we will see highs stay in the middle 90s. Overnight lows in the week ahead will stay in the middle 70s.

The longer-range picture hasn’t changed much since yesterday. It still appears that we will see the ridge strengthen and become centered over the middle of the country. This will once again result in drier than normal conditions with above normal temperatures. We could see the hottest temperatures of the summer so far during the last week of July. I will have the details in tonight’s live weather update at 8:30 pm and at the end of tonight’s 10 pm newscast in the last Two Week Weather Outlook.

Have a great weekend!
