Freeze Warning in effect for all of the Arklatex Thursday night. Temperatures flirt with 20 degrees across the northern edge of the area. Above normal temperatures return next week with no rain.
A big surge of cold air is spilling into the Arklatex and will gradually decrease the clouds across the area from north no south. Once we lose the insulation blanket that the clouds provide, we’ll see temperatures take a tumble. Lows will dip into the low 20s where the clouds depart sooner over the northern edge of the area. Expect temperatures in the low 30s across the southern edge of the area where the clouds linger for most of the night. While a few flakes of snow will be possible over SW LA and SE TX, I don’t expect any winter precip in our area.
Sunshine will return to all of the Arklatex Friday. Despite that sunshine, temperatures will stay well below normal as highs will stay in the mid to upper 40s. Expect another freeze for most of our area Friday night thanks to a clear sky and light wind. We will then see another big warm up through Monday. Daytime highs Saturday will soar to the upper 50s. We should be in the upper 50s to near 60 Sunday. The warmest day of the week will be Monday. The combination of lots of sunshine and a breezy southwesterly wind will combine to heat us up to near 70 degrees.
Another weak surge of cool air will invade the area Tuesday. Highs should briefly return to normal in the upper 50s Tuesday. We will then warm back to the low to mid 60s for the rest of next week. Don’t expect any rain through the entire week ahead. We might see a shot at some rainfall by the end of next weekend but that is not set in stone. Stay Tuned!
Average high/low for today’s date: 60/39.
