It is setting up to be another perfect weather day, but changes will roll in quickly this weekend leading to an eventual chance for rain and a few thunderstorms.
Chilly again this morning as sunrise readings will be in the low and mid 40s. Once the sun is up it will turn into a comfortable day with noon temperatures in the mid 60s, on our way to highs in the mid 70s for a second consecutive day. Wind will be light and out of the north, turning to the east at times as we move through the day.
Later today we may see an increase in upper level clouds as the ridge of high pressure keeping us comfortable and dry moves east, and our next disturbance approaches. No rain is expected today. A few showers are likely to develop across east Texas and Oklahoma Saturday morning, and move east during the day. See the latest 36 hour loop of futurecast below:
A second disturbance will move into the region Sunday. While we may see a few showers and a thunderstorm or two during the day, the highest rain chances will be late Sunday into Monday morning as a cold front passes through. At this point severe weather can’t be ruled out, but if a threat does develop it will likely be low end with only a few strong storms capable of high wind. Weekend highs will remain comfortable, in the 60s and 70s.
Rain will likely wrap up during the day Monday. Total rainfall accumulations will be in the half inch to 1 inch range.
Cooler air will drop in Tuesday, with a dry pattern Tuesday and Wednesday. A quick warming trend will push our highs into the 70s during the middle portions of next week, with more rain likely late in the week.
