Thursday night will again bring well below freezing temperatures. Normal temperatures return by the weekend. Two chances for rain in the week ahead.
Thursday was another chilly day around the Arklatex. Temperatures began in the upper teens to low 20s. Expect much of the same Thursday night as the combination of a clear sky, calm wind, and dry air will allow temperatures to again dip well below freezing.
Friday will likely begin with temperatures in the low to mid 20s. The good news is that we will see a nice warm up during the day Friday as highs will climb into the low to mid 50s for most of the area. The sunshine Friday will continue into the weekend as the warming trend continues as well. Look for highs Saturday to climb into the mid 50s.
The first of two disturbances will move over the area late Sunday and Sunday night. Clouds will increase Saturday night in advance of this system. The chance for some showers will gradually increase Sunday although most of the rain that we will likely see will fall Sunday night. A second disturbance will bring another shot for some rain with some thunder possible. Right now I’m not too concerned about any severe weather although it cannot totally be ruled out. Models indicate that rainfall totals from the two disturbances will be in range of 1/2 to 1″.
Temperatures will be slightly above normal for most of the week ahead. From Sunday through next Thursday look for highs to be in the upper 50s to low 60s. Overnight lows will mainly be in the 30s and 40s.
Average High/Low for today’s date: 57/36.
