Not much to get in the way of an enjoyable weekend across the ArkLaTex as our next cold front won’t arrive until Tuesday.
For Friday evening, expect temperatures in the 50s, then falling into the mid to upper 40s overnight. Skies will remain mostly clear with calm wind.
For Saturday, plenty of sunshine is expected early in the day. There will be on and off scattered clouds throughout the afternoon and evening resulting in partly cloudy skies after noon. Highs will comfortably top out in the upper 60s and low 70s.
Sunday will bring us partly to mostly cloudy skies with highs in the mid 70s. Clouds will be on the increase throughout the day but rain chances look low. If we do see an isolated shower it would be across east Texas and McCurtain county.
An upper level disturbance will move across the Plains on Monday and force a cold front through the ArkLaTex on Tuesday. South wind will increase ahead of the front through the weekend and into Monday which may lead to scattered rain showers and a few thunderstorms especially Monday evening into Monday night.
Rain and thunderstorms will increase Tuesday morning with the slow moving front keeping rain chances high through the daylight hours. We may see a much needed half an inch to an inch of rain with this system. There does not appear to be any severe weather threat at this time.
(Rainfall accumulation now through Wednesday morning):
Behind the front our highs will cool into the 50s next Wednesday and Thursday with overnight lows Tuesday night through Thursday night dropping into the 30s.
