Clouds to gradually return to the Arklatex Thursday. Another strong cold front to bring another threat for severe storms Friday evening and Friday night. Weekend begins with chilly temperatures.
Wednesday was mild day around the Arklatex as temperatures began in the 30s and 40s. Despite lots of sunshine, highs only reached the low to mid 60s. Expect another quick warming trend for the rest of the work week after another chilly night Wednesday night. Temperatures Thursday morning will begin in the upper 30s to low 40s. We’ll see highs Thursday in the mid to upper 60s. Thursday will begin with lots of sunshine and likely end with lots of clouds.
Friday our attention will turn to another strong cold front that will move through the area Friday night. Ahead of this front look for a mostly cloudy sky Friday with a chance for a scattered shower or thunderstorm. Highs Friday will climb into the upper 70s to low 80a thanks to a breezy south wind. The Storm Prediction Center indicates that we will see a ‘slight’ risk for severe storms. Damaging wind will likely be the main threat along with the possibility for some large hail. The tornado risk is looking rather low since most of the storms will occur slightly behind the front.
Futurecast indicates that we could pick up a quick inch of rain from the line of storms that will move through Friday night.
We will see a much cooler day Saturday under a mostly cloudy sky. It will be very windy as temperatures will begin in the low to mid 40s and will struggle to make it into the low to mid 50s Saturday afternoon. Sunshine will return Sunday and will likely stick around for most of the rest of the seven day period. We will also see a warming trend with highs returning to the upper 70s to low 80s. Lows will warm from the low to mid 30s Saturday night to the upper 40s to low 50s by the middle of next week.
