Cool Canadian air is moving into the region this morning, so temperatures are running cold, but a dry and pleasant weather pattern is expected this weekend and into next week.
Temperatures are in the 30s and 40s this morning, and you will likely need a jacket throughout the day. This afternoon our highs will be in the 50s and low 60s, with a northwest breeze of 10 to 15 miles per hour adding a little wind chill to the temperatures.
A very strong ridge of high pressure is building across the west coast of the country. This is essentially like building a wall that will send storm systems north or south over the next 7 to 10 days. The ArkLaTex will live in the shadow of this weather pattern and enjoy dry and pleasant conditions as a result. We may see a few clouds today, but overall it will be mostly sunny to partly cloudy through the weekend with no rainfall in the forecast. Highs will be similar tomorrow before warming into the mid 60s on Sunday.
A glorious stretch of days is expected next week. Highs will be in the upper 60s and low 70s Monday through Friday with little to no chance of any rain. Mornings will be cool as we will remain in the 30s and 40s to begin each day.
It looks like the next chance of rain will be next weekend, the 23rd and 24th. This is far enough away that this isn’t set in stone yet. Enjoy the quiet conditions during severe weather season while we have them, and have a great weekend!
