830pm Live Update:Rain threat to end this evening and increase this weekend

Futurecast

830pm Live Update:

Rain chances decrease just in time for Fourth of July fireworks.  Front expected this weekend to bring more widespread rain.  Temperatures to stay near normal.

Happy Independence Day!  Today proved to be a rather typical Fourth of July with a mix of clouds and some afternoon sunshine.  We have seen a few scattered showers and thunderstorms, but most of the area has remained dry today.  Most over the rain is occurring over the southern third of the area.  This activity should quickly decrease during the evening with temperatures falling through the 80s.

Look for the chance for rain to increase a little for Thursday and Friday.  Any rain that does develop should be rather scattered but we will likely see more activity than what we’ve witnessed today.  Scattered storms will be most numerous during the afternoon and will likely end during the evening.  Look for daytime highs to close the work week to be in the mid 90s.  Overnight lows will be in the mid 70s.

A weak front will make its way into the Arklatex Friday night and Saturday. This front will bring a good shot for some showers and thunderstorms.  This front will likely stall somewhere in or near the Arklatex Sunday and Monday and could serve as the trigger for even more needed rain.  As of right now, it appears that rainfall chances Sunday and Monday will be highest over ETX and NW LA.  The boundary will likely wash out and we will see a drier pattern return by the middle of next week.

Models indicate that another one to more than two inches will be possible over much of the area.  High temperatures will eventually settle into the low 90s.  Lows will likely stay in the low to mid 70s.

Fireworks Outlook: Isolated Storms end. Temps fall through the 80s.

Average high/low for today’s date:  93/72.
