Hot and dry weather on the way

Futurecast

As the remnants of Irma move away, upper level high pressure moves in.  Expect a dry and hotter week ahead.  Jose to likely remain over the Atlantic.

The remnants of Irma have made their way into MS and TN today and are now close enough to spread lots of clouds over the Arklatex.  We have not seen much as far as rain.  Those clouds have kept temperatures well below normal.  Daytime highs Tuesday have remained in the upper 70s to low 80s.  Irma will move to the northeast during the next 24 hours.  This will result in the clouds moving out late tonight into Wednesday morning.  The return of sunshine will bring much warmer temperatures starting Wednesday.  Upper level high pressure will then settle over our area for the rest of the week.  This will keep us hot and dry with highs in the low to mid 90s and lows warming into the upper 60s to low 70s.  

The upper level ridge will gradually shift a little to the west by the first of next week.  This may allow a slight chance for the pop up afternoon storm to return to our forecast but don’t expect much.

In the tropics,  all eyes are now on Hurricane Jose.  It is looking more apparent that Jose will not threaten the east coast of the United States as it very well could stay well out in the Atlantic.

Normal high/low for today’s date: 90/67
