Cool mornings and near perfect afternoons will be the theme of this week, with very slight rain chances midweek, and a better chance of our next shot of rain in all areas arriving over the weekend.
This morning a jacket is needed as most areas are in the low upper 30s or low 40s under mostly clear skies. We may see some very light patchy fog/frost due to light wind, but we don’t have any major weather impacts in the pattern today. Look for high temperatures today to top out in the upper 60s and low 70s. The outdoor temperatures will mirror where we keep the thermostat set at home for much of the week.
The Pacific jetstream is still very active to our south and at times it will create partly cloudy skies today, especially south of I-20, but skies will remain mostly sunny in most areas today and for much of the week.
Our only chance of a few light showers this week will occur Wednesday as an upper level disturbance brushes the far northern sections of the ArkLaTex on Wednesday. Most areas will stay dry, but we may see a few raindrops Texarkana and northward during the day.
Highs late this week may hit the low and mid 70s with dry conditions Thursday before very slight rain chances return Friday. A better chance of showers and thunderstorms will return this weekend as our next upper level disturbance swings through the region. 7 day rain totals may exceed 1 inch in a few areas northwest of I-20, with the majority of this rain falling over the weekend.
