Heat & humidity to stick around

Futurecast

Upper level high pressure keeps rain to a minimum and keeps temperatures above normal.  Hurricane Maria could threaten the US east coast.

Monday brought a mix of sunshine and clouds to the Arklatex.  After lows Monday morning in the upper 60s to low 70s, high temperatures will settle into the upper 80s to low 90s.  We have also witnessed a few isolated t’showers.  Don’t expect much change in the week ahead. We will continue to see a very slight chance for the afternoon hit or miss storm pretty much each day.  Rainfall chances may be slightly highest Thursday.  Daytime highs in the week ahead will stay above normal.  Look for highs to stay mainly in the upper 80s to low 90s.  Overnight lows will also remain above normal in the upper 60s to low 70s. Models indicated that if you get some rain in the week ahead, it won’t be much.  Our weekly rainfall totals will likely stay below 1/2″ at most locations.

The tropics remain rather active with three named storms in the Atlantic basin including Jose, Lee and Maria.  Of the three, Maria will pose the biggest threat to the US east coast.  Maria is expected to become a category four hurricane as it threatens Puerto Rico.  Most models show the storm moving between the US coast and Bermuda.  It is very unlikely that this system will make it to the Gulf of Mexico and threaten the Arklatex.

Normal high/low for today’s date:
88/65.
