Sunshine to stick around for the rest of the work week. Thunderstorms return for the weekend with severe weather possible.
Monday was a mostly sunny and pleasant day around the Arklatex. Temperatures began in the 50s and warmed into the low 80s. Expect similar conditions with a bit of a warming trend for the rest of the week. We’ll see plenty of sunshine on Tuesday. Temperatures will begin in the upper 50s to low 60s. Daytime highs will be in the low to middle 80s.
Expect the sunshine and warming trend to continue through Friday. Overnight lows will eventually warm to the mid to upper 60s. Daytime highs will be in the mid to upper 80s.
Our next shot at rain will return this weekend. Another strong storm system will bring a round of strong to possibly severe thunderstorms late Saturday, Saturday night into Sunday. As of right now, models indicate that we will see some heavy rain with totals of one to two inches possible in spots. We will once again have to watch area lakes and rivers for another possible crest next week. It appears that the heaviest rain in our region could fall in the Red River basin upstream in S OK and NC TX.
Average High/Low for today’s date: 83/62.
