Cold front to bring showers and a few t’storms to begin the weekend. Much cooler air returns to the area behind the front. Temperatures flirt with 80 by the end of next week.
Friday was a cloudy day around the Arklatex. A weak disturbance did bring some rain. That system will quickly move out of the area late Friday afternoon and evening. We will then wait on a strong cold front that will work its way through the area Saturday. This front will begin to produce some rain Friday night over the northern half of the area. That rain will shift to the south Saturday morning. As the front encounters some warmer air Saturday afternoon over E TX and NW LA, we will begin to see a few scattered t’storms.
This activity likely will not be severe and rainfall totals should be rather light with totals remaining below 1/2“ over all of the area. See the latest outlook from Futurecast below:
We’ll then see a mix of sunshine and clouds Sunday in between disturbances. HIghs will be much cooler. After highs Saturday in the 60s and 70s. Highs Sunday will retreat to the mid to upper 50s. Another disturbance will move through the area Monday and will bring a chance for a few showers especially over the southern half of the area. It will stay rather cool Monday with highs in the mid 50s.
Sunshine will return for the middle of the work week with a warming trend. Highs will return to the upper 60s to low 70s. Lows will warm from the mid to upper 30s to low to middle 40s. That warming trend will continue through the rest of the work week. Expect highs to climb to the mid to upper 70s by Friday. Lows will return to the mid to upper 50s. We will also close the week with a chance for a few scattered showers or thunderstorms both Thursday and Friday.
Average high/low for today’s date: 73/49.
