Cooler temperatures settle in for a few days. Next best chance for rain returns Sunday. Another warm up next week.
830pm Live Update:
Thursday was a cooler day around the Arklatex thanks to a cold front that moved through the area. The front has produced a few scattered showers and thunderstorms that should move out of the area this evening. A few scattered areas of mainly light rain will be possible Wednesday night and Thursday as cooler air continues to settle into the area from the north behind the front. Look for Wednesday night lows to be in the upper 50s to low 60s across the northern parts of the area and low to mid 60s across the south.

Thursday looks to be another mostly cloudy day. I do expect to see some sunshine especially over the northern half of the area Thursday afternoon. Look for daytime highs to be slightly below normal in the mid to upper 70s over most of the area. Friday will likely be a mainly dry day around the area with a mix of sunshine and clouds. Morning lows will range from the upper 50s across the north to the mid 60s across the south. Look for daytime highs Friday in the low to mid 80s.
That warming trend will continue into next week. As that warm and more moist air returns from the Gulf of Mexico, expect the chance for rain to increase this weekend. Right now it looks like the best chance for some scattered showers and a few thunderstorms will be Sunday. Those rainfall chances will likely decrease for the first half of next week. Look for daytime highs to return to the upper 80s. Overnight lows will likely return to the upper 60s to low 70s. Right now models indicate that the heaviest rain in the week ahead will be over the southern half of the area where 1/2 to 1″ will be possible. The northern half of the area will likely receive amounts of 1/4″ or less.
Average High/Low for today’s date: 85/62.
