Arklatex to stay warm and dry.

Futurecast

Warm and dry weather could continue through next weekend.  Hurricane Irma forecast tracks shift a little to the west.  Don’t forget about Jose.

Thursday proved to be another gorgeous day around the Arklatex with lots of sunshine and below normal temperatures.  Lows Thursday morning were in the low to middle 50s.  The low in Shreveport dropped to within one degree of a record as we bottomed out at 54 degrees.  

Don’t expect much change for the next few days.  The sunshine will continue as both overnight and daytime temperatures warm just a little.  We’ll see lows Friday and this weekend in the upper 50s to low 60s.  Daytime highs will be in the low to mid 80s.  Hurricane Irma could serve to reinforce our below normal temperatures for the middle of next week.  Once the system moves out, upper level high pressure will then settle in.  That means highs will be closer to 90 and lows closer to 70 by the end of next week.

Hurricane Irma is still a catastrophic category 5 Hurricane.  Model forecasts have been trending back a little to the west during the past 24 hours.  That means that a chance for a Florida landfall is looking more promising. The European model has shift it’s forecast more to the west coast of Florida. Irma will then move north and and eventually move to the Ohio River valley by the middle of next week.  While Irma dies over the eastern US, attention will then shift to Hurricane Jose.  Last night’s Euro run showed that this system could also threaten FL, but it backed off some with this morning’s run. Even we will have to watch Jose closely although at this point it is unlikely that it will pose a threat to the TX/LA coasts.  Stay Tuned.

Average High/Low for today’s date: 91/69.
