830pm Wednesday Live update: Rain to stick around as the cooling trend continues.

Futurecast

Thursday looking soggy and cooler.  Two shots of cold air coming in the week ahead.  Freezing temperatures look promising for much of the area.

830pm Live Update:

Wednesday was a cloudy and cooler day across the Arklatex.  Showers and a few t’storms moved across mainly the southern half of the area.  Look for the clouds, rain chances and cooling trend to continu through Thursday night.  We  will continue to see a chance for a few scattered t’showers but as cooler air continues to slowly filter into our area the amount of thunder will likely decrease.  It appears that our best shot of seeing some heavy rain will hold off until Thursday night.  It also appears that the rain will be heaviest over the southern half of the Arklatex in NW LA and E TX.  Futurecast indicates that this area could receive more than an inch of rain with a few spots possibly receiving up to two inches.  

See the latest outlook for the next 36 hours from Futurecast here:

Some of the coldest air of the season will arrive late Friday and Friday night.  Look for the clouds and lingering rain Friday morning to give way to some late day sunshine.  We will see dry condition for area high school football games, but it will be rather breezy and chilly.  Highs both Thursday and Friday will likely stay in the 50s for most of the area.  It still appears that parts of the Arklatex could experience freezing temperatures Friday night.  Lows will probably dip into the low to mid 30s over the northern half of the area and the mid to upper 30s over the south.  

Another disturbance will bring a chance for some rain late Sunday, Sunday night, and Monday.  This system will also bring an even cooler air mass to our area for the middle of next week.  Look for highs to dip into the 40s for Tuesday and possibly Wednesday.  Overnight lows during this period could dip into the upper 20s to low 30s.   

Average High/Low for today’s date:  71/48.
