Front to bring falling Friday temperatures

Futurecast

Freezing temperatures possible for much of the Arklatex this weekend.  Two chances for rain in the week ahead with the heaviest on the way by the middle of next week.

We continue to watch a strong cold front that will move through the area during the day Friday.  Ahead of the front Thursday temperatures have soared into the low to middle 80s.  Friday as the front moves through, look for temperatures to begin the day in the upper 40s to low 50s across the north to the low to mid 60s across the south.  By Friday afternoon behind the front, temperatures will dip into the mid to upper 40s across the north to the low 50s across the south.  Given some relatively dry air now in place, we likely won’t see much rain.  Futurecast keeps almost all of the rain to the east of our area. Other models show anywhere from 1/10 to 1/4″ possible over the southeast half of the region.

Look for the clouds to rapidly clear out from the Arklatex Friday night.  This will allow for the first of two very cold nights for this time of year.  Overnight lows Friday night will dip into the low to mid 30s across the north to the mid to upper 30s across the south.  Saturday will be a rather chilly day for this time of year with highs across the entire area in the mid to upper 50s.  Saturday will be followed by even colder temperatures Saturday night.  Lows will dip into the upper 20s to low 30s across the north to the low to mid 30s across the south.  While I only expect freezing temperatures for part of our area, all of us should make preparations for a possible freeze as the entire area will either be near or below freezing.

A warming trend will begin Sunday and continue into Monday.  Daytime highs will return to the mid to upper 60s Sunday and mid to upper 70s Monday.  A second disturbance will then approach the area Tuesday and Wednesday and will bring cooler temperatures and a decent shot at some rain. Rain will be possible for our area for Halloween festivities Tuesday evening.  Our best shot for rain will likely hold off until Tuesday night and Wednesday.  Models indicate that more than an inch of rain will be possible during the middle of next week.  

Halloween Trick or Treat Outlook:  Mostly cloudy with rain possible.  Temperatures falling into the 50s.

Average High/Low for today’s date:  75/51
