Warmer temperatures on the way. Slight chance for showers returns to the forecast for some. Front to bring weekend cool down.
Tuesday brought a mix of sunshine and clouds across the Arklatex with more clouds across the NW half of the area and more sunshine over the southeast half. This will likely continue Tuesday night and Wednesday. A weak disturbance will bring a slight chance for a shower or two for parts of NE TX, SW AR and SE OK. That slight chance for rain will gradually shift to the south Wednesday night and Thursday. The warmest day of the week will likely be Friday. The combination of a breezy south wind and a little more sunshine will allow daytime highs to return to the upper 70s. Highs leading up to Friday will also be above normal despite the clouds as temps will range from the 60s across the north to the low to mid 70s across the south. Overnight lows during the rest of the work week will be in the upper 50s to low to mid 60s.
A cold front will ease through the area Saturday. This front will not have much upper level support. That means that while we will see a chance for rain, if you get some, it won’t be much. The biggest story with the front will be the drop in temperatures. Highs will retreat back to the low to mid 60s by Sunday. Overnight lows will dip into the upper 30s to low 40s.
In the long range, models show another disturbance bring a shot for some rain for the middle of next week. This system should clear our area by Thanksgiving day as some chilly air moves in from the northeast. Look for lows Thanksgiving day to be in the mid to upper 30s. Daytime highs will be in the upper 40s to low 50s. We’ll see a mix of sunshine and clouds.
Average High/Low for today’s date: 68/46.
