Sunshine to stick around for a few days. Warming trend to begin Tuesday. Severe weather possible late in the week.
830pm Live Update:
Monday was a mostly sunny and windy day around the Arklatex. Temperatures were once again rather chilly with morning lows in the 30s. Daytime highs have struggled to make it in the upper 40s to low 50s. Expect another clear and cold night Monday night. Overnight lows will be below freezing over most of the area as we bottom out in the upper 20s to low 30s. A warming trend will then begin Tuesday. Under a mostly sunny sky daytime highs will likely climb into the mid to upper 50s.
That warming trend will continue for the rest of the work week. By Thursday temperatures will be in the 70s and lows will be in the 50s. Look for clouds to increase Thursday with a very slight chance for rain. That rain threat will increase Friday as a strong disturbance approaches from the west. This system will have the potential to produce severe weather with all severe weather threats on the table. SPC is already indicating that we will have a ‘slight risk’ of severe storms. Don’t be surprised if that level is raised to ‘enhanced’ or even ‘moderate’ by Friday.
The weekend will begin with a quieter weather picture Saturday as any leftover rain and clouds should move out of the area in the morning. Expect a mix of sunshine and clouds for the weekend with near or even slightly above normal temperatures. Highs this weekend will be in the low to mid 60s. Overnight lows will be in the 50s Saturday and 40s Sunday. Another rather strong disturbance will move into the area Monday and will likely bring the threat for more rain. As of right now it appears as if severe weather will not be much of a concern. However, with daytime temperatures likely near 70 degrees that could change.
Average High/Low for today’s date: 64/42.
