A cold front will move through the ArkLaTex today bringing pleasant temperatures for the remainder of the week, as well as additional rainfall.
This morning the front is making slow progress through the I-30 corridor bringing with it a few scattered rain showers. The highest chance for raindrops this morning will remain north of I-20 with the front shifting into the I-20 corridor mid-day. Rain chances will be highest across east Texas and Louisiana during the afternoon and evening. This front won’t be a significant rain maker, as accumulations will be less than an inch in most areas. Due to the warm air ahead of the front we may see a few thunderstorms along and south of I-20 which could produce some brief heavy rain. If this happens, it wouldn’t be surprising to see over an inch of rain where this occurs. Check back for animated futurecast updates throughout the morning.
Highs will likely be in the 70s and 80s under otherwise mostly cloudy skies today, with a north wind settling in behind the front which should lower the humidity levels today and tomorrow.
The front will be near the coast tomorrow, but we may catch a few raindrops again due to its close proximity to the ArkLaTex.
Enjoy the cooler seasonal temperatures while we have them! It’s possible we’ll be back into the upper 80s next week.
