Expect a breezy and much warmer Friday. Cold front moves through Saturday morning. Rainfall still looking light in the week ahead. Thanksgiving Day weather now looking normal.
Thursday proved to be a cloudy day across the Arklatex. Those clouds resulted in cooler temperatures especially across the northern half of the area where temperatures stayed in the low to mid 60s. Look for warmer air to spread to the north Thursday night and Friday. Friday will begin with lots of clouds. It will end with some afternoon sunshine that will combine with a breezy south wind to warm temperatures into the upper 70s to low 80s.
A cold front will move through the area early Saturday. This front will likely not produce much as far as rain. The main thing that you will notice Saturday is a gusty north to northwesterly wind that will howl at 15 to 25 mph. That wind will be transporting some cooler air into the area. Look for highs to return to the low to mid 60s Sunday and Monday. Overnight lows will fall into the low to mid 30s. Expect plenty of sunshine from late Saturday through most of Monday.
Models are indicating that we could see more clouds and a very slight chance for some rain by the middle of next week. A disturbance will be developing as it moves across the southern half of the country. As of right now it doesn’t appear that it will bring much rain to our area as amounts will probably stay below 1/4″ from now through Thanksgiving. Note that we have not seen much consistency with this disturbance so we still could see some change in the outlook for next Tuesday and Wednesday. On the other hand, it is becoming apparent that we will see a dry Thanksgiving Day with temperatures pretty close to normal in the low to mid 60s.
Average High/Low for today’s date: 67/45.
