830pm Monday update:
Disturbance that has brought recent rains to move away. Near normal temperatures return. Low end rainfall chances return later in the week.
Monday was a dry day over most of the Arklatex. We witnessed a mix of sunshine and clouds over the southern two thirds of the area. Showers and thunderstorms were once again rather numerous over the northern third of the area. Look for that rain to decrease and end Monday night as the disturbance causing it continues to head to the north and east. Upper level high pressure will built back over most of the area and bring with it the return to near normal temperatures that will remain in place for most of the week ahead. Expect daytime highs to mainly be in the low to mid 90s. Overnight lows will mainly be in the middle 70s. See the continuously updated loop from Futurecast below for the latest on the timing of any rainfall.
Models continue to show another disturbance moving into the northeastern half of the country. This system will ease a weak front into our area Thursday. This feature could lead to some low end rainfall chances for Thursday, Friday and the weekend. Rainfall potential is looking rather low during this period with totals for the end of the week likely staying at 1/2″ or less. We will likely begin next week on a dry note.
Average High/Low for today’s date: 95/73.
