That sunshine will continue Friday and Saturday with even warmer temperatures. Lows will warm to the mid to upper 50s by the beginning of the weekend. Highs should return to the low to middle 80s.
The weather could begin to return to a wetter pattern late Sunday over the western half of the area as we will see a chance for a few scattered showers and thunderstorms. The threat of shower and thunderstorms will increase for all of the ArkLaTex Monday. Unfortunately, it appears that we will continue to see weak disturbance after weak disturbance keep the rain threat in the forecast through all of next week.
It’s a bit early to speculate on the extent of any severe weather threat we could face next week. We should have enough instability in place to say that we will have at least an isolated risk. It’s also difficult to pinpoint exactly how much rain we could receive. The most reliable model shows rainfall totals of two to three inches from Sunday through Friday. Less reliable models show amounts near ten inches. A blend of models shows amounts of three to four inches which would be a reasonable expectation.
