A Freeze Warning is in effect for all counties and parishes from midnight until 9 a.m. Sunday. As wind goes calm overnight radiational cooling will drop our low temperatures into the upper 20s and low 30s. Sensitive outdoor plants will need to be covered up.
(Futurecast snapshot of Sunday sunrise temperatures):
After the chilly start to our morning a south wind will return as the upper level low pulling the cold air into the region departs to our east. Afternoon highs will feel fantastic as we will be in the mid to upper 60s under sunny skies. It will not be as breezy on Sunday, but wind is expected to be out of the southwest at 10 miles per hour during the afternoon.
Monday will bring another round of sunshine with highs returning to near normal for late October, in the mid 70s.
Our next rain making disturbance will approach on Halloween, but it looks like rain should hold off for most of the day. If we see any late day showers it would most likely be across east Texas and Oklahoma.
The disturbance will bring a better chance of much needed rainfall on Wednesday as highs through the middle of the week will remain in the 60s/70s, with overnight lows in the 50s.
Warmer weather with highs in the 80s and slight rain chances will be the story Thursday through Saturday.
