830pm Wed LIVE UPDATE: Work week ends with warm up and thunderstorms Friday night.


A few showers possible Wednesday night into Thursday.  Heavier rain expect late Friday and Friday night.  Colder air returns this weekend.  More rain possible by the middle of next week.

830PM Live Update:

Wednesday was another mostly cloudy and cool day around the Arklatex. Temperatures began in the mid 40s and warmed into the mid to upper 50s.  Expect warmer temperatures for the next few days. A weak disturbance will bring a chance for a few scattered showers Wednesday night into Thursday morning.  It is possible that we’ll see a few breaks in the clouds late Thursday through Thursday night.

See the latest 36 hour outlook from Futurecast below:

Clouds will increase Friday and a few scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible very late Friday and especially Friday night.  It is possible that some rain may linger into Saturday morning, but chances are that most of the rain that we’ll see in the next few days will fall Friday night.  Severe weather chances look very low with only a few isolated severe storms possible to the west of the Arklatex.  Models have backed off some on how much rain we might see with amounts in the 1/2 to one inch range now expected.

Much cooler air will invade the Arklatex in the wake of the cold front that will produce Friday night’s storms.  Temperatures Saturday morning will likely begin in the mid to upper 50s. We’ll likely dip into the low to mid 40s during the day thanks to a gusty northwest wind of 18-25 mph.  Temkpeatuers will stay well below normal Sunday with lows in the 20s and highs in the 40s. We will then begin another warming trend with highs returning to the 50s for Monday and Tuesday as yet another disturbance approaches.  This system could drop some more rain on our area both Tuesday and Wednesday.  Another batch of chilly air will likely return to our area for the end of next week.  

Average High/Low for today’s date:  57/36.
