830pm live update:Rain chances to increase starting Wednesday

Futurecast

Monday 830pm Live Update:

Weather pattern to become wetter and cooler for most of the week ahead.  A couple inches of rain will be possible.

The work week got off to a hot start Monday.  Thanks to plenty of sunshine daytime highs soared into the mid to upper 90s.  Don’t expect much change for Tuesday.  We will see another warm start Tuesday morning with low temperatures in the mid 70s.  We will then heat up quickly with highs again in the mid to upper 90s.  The good news is that change is on the way.

A large upper level trough of low pressure will settle over the northeastern half of the country.  This feature is forecast to remain fairly stationary and could still be sitting over the Great Lakes by this time next week.  This means that we can expect a decent chance for rain to return to part of the area Wednesday and to all of the area for most of the rest of the week.  Models continue to consistently show rainfall potential of one to three inches for most of the Arklatex.  

Another benefit of the needed rain is cooler temperatures.  Daytime highs in the week ahead will eventually settle into the upper 80s to low 90s.  Overnight lows will likely stay in the low to mid 70s. 

This rain comes at a good time as most of the area is experiencing drought conditions and burn bans are in effect for much of the area as you can see in the map below.

Average High/Low for today’s date: 95/73.
