The rain has moved south, and we have a few clouds this morning across Texas and Louisiana, but we are in for a mostly sunny and warm Tuesday. If you are out and about before 9 a.m. you will greeted with temperatures comfortably in low to mid 70s (even in the 60s across Arkansas/Oklahoma).
A north wind is now setting up behind the cold front that moved through yesterday. This will drop our humidity level today, and heat index or ‘feels like’ temperatures will fall under 100 degrees. That said, it will still remain a hot day as the sunshine will push afternoon highs into the low and mid 90s. A few areas north of I-30 may stay in the upper 80s. Wind speeds will be at 10 miles per hour, not as breezy as yesterday.
The dry pattern looks like it will stick around for the remainder of the week. Overnight lows will remain comfortable through at least Friday morning. A returning south wind will bring another round of heat index readings over 100 degrees late this week and into the weekend. In fact, actual thermometer readings may reach 100 degrees at some point over the weekend. It looks like the sea breeze may bring slight chances late in the weekend into early next week.
