The comfortable weekend temperatures will continue into the new week, but we with a slow moving front moving into the region we will see a lot of cloud cover and lightly scattered rainfall at times today.
This morning we are off to an unseasonably mild start to the day with temperatures running in the mid to upper 50s. . A southwest wind of 10 miles per hour and an increase in cloud cover is keeping any fog from setting up so far.
The front is now moving into our east Texas and Oklahoma counties and this may result in a few rain showers in these locations early in the day. Due to the slow movement of the front into Louisiana and Arkansas we may continue to see a few scattered showers continue into the afternoon and evening. The good news is we aren’t expecting any heavy rainfall as most areas will see less than a tenth of an inch of an inch worth of raindrops today. See the latest loop of futurecast below:
High temperatures will remain comfortable today as highs will top out in the 60s and low 70s under otherwise mostly cloudy to overcast skies. It may be breezy at times as a southwest increases to 15 miles per hour late this morning and into the afternoon, with a few wind gusts over 20 miles per hour.
Tuesday is shaping up to be another pleasant day with highs in the mid 60s and partly cloudy skies. The cooler air will arrive Wednesday as highs dip into the 50s but dry air keeps the sun shining throughout the day.
Our next chance for rain will move in late Thursday, with ran chances ramping up Friday through at least early Saturday. At this point it looks like this disturbance could drop another inch of rain on the region, but given the late week timing there remains some uncertainty so check back for updates. What is certain is that colder temperatures will arrive Friday through the weekend with highs in the 40s and low 50s.
