As high pressure moves away, and a cold front nears, it will turn into a breezy, mostly cloudy and warm Friday.
This morning a very mild start as we are in the mid to upper 50s. Cloud cover has thickened overnight and we are in for mostly cloudy to overcast skies today. Despite the clouds, a south wind will keep the warm Gulf air flowing through and highs will be in the low to mid 70s.
We may see an occasional pop-up rain shower today with light accumulations, but most areas will stay dry. A cold front will move into the region overnight and continue a slow trek through the ArkLaTex tomorrow. This will bring scattered showers and a few thunderstorms during the day, with the rain tapering off late. See the latest 36-hour loop of futurecast below.
As of now we are not in the severe weather outlook, but there is a severe weather threat to our northwest in central Oklahoma. A few storms could bring high wind or small hail this evening or tomorrow morning north of I-30 if they develop.
Rainfall accumulations will be less than half an inch, so it won’t be an all day or heavy rain.
Much cooler air will drop in behind the front with Sunday high temperatures falling into the mid/upper 50s. We will stay dry Sunday but remain mostly cloudy.
Another disturbance Monday could bring a few rain showers, but this will move through quickly. Sunshine will return for the middle of next week with a warming trend carrying us into the upper 60s Tuesday, and low 70s Wednesday.
