Halloween weekend looking sunny and pleasant with chilly mornings and mild afternoons. The dry weather pattern could last through next weekend with above-normal temperatures by the end of next week. Another disturbance in the Caribbean could become Theta.
Finally, some sunshine returned to all of the ArkLaTex. We experienced below-normal temperatures once again and that is something that will likely continue until the end of next week. Look for another clear and rather cold night Friday night. We will see overnight lows dip into the upper 30s to lower 40s. Normal for this time of year is in the upper 40s to lower 50s. The warming trend that began today will continue through the weekend. Look for lots of sunshine again Saturday and Sunday. Highs Saturday will climb into the mid to upper 60s. It will stay clear for Trick or Treating with temperatures Saturday evening falling into the 50s. Sunday morning likely won’t be as chilly with lows in the low to middle 40s. Highs Sunday will climb into the upper 60s to lower 70s.
Another shot of colder air will briefly invade the area to begin next week. This front likely won’t bring much in terms of clouds nor rainfall. However, it will pause the warming trend for a few days. Lows Monday morning will dip back into the 30s and lower 40s. Highs Monday will drop to the low to middle 60s. Monday night will likely be the coldest night of the week with lows across all of the ArkLaTex dipping into the mid to upper 30s.
The warming trend will then resume Tuesday. By next weekend, highs will warm into the middle 70s. Overnight lows will warm to the low to middle 50s. It still appears that we will stay totally dry through next weekend.
Even though we are heading into November this weekend, the hurricane season is far from over. It is looking likely that we will see another disturbance in the Caribbean become a depression soon. This system, if named, would become Tropical Storm Theta. This would tie this year as the most active tropical season ever. As of right now, it doesn’t appear as if this system will make it into the Gulf of Mexico. Stay Tuned!
Reminder!!! Daylight Saving Time ends Saturday night. Set your clocks back one hour before going to bed. Yay! We get our hour of sleep back!
