Rain continues for Wednesday. Some areas could see a couple of inches before the system moves out Thursday.
Rain is falling across most of the ArkLaTex this afternoon. The heaviest of the rain is over north eastern Texas. This system will continue to push east across the ArkLaTex. Areas near Mount Pleasant have already received around an inch and a half of rainfall. All of the area has a good shot of seeing some much needed rainfall. Highs today will top out in the lower to middle 80’s for much of the area. Expect overnight lows to drop down into the middle 70’s.
As we move into Thursday, this system will begin to push off to the south and east. Things will dry out for western portions of the ArkLaTex by Thursday afternoon. Highs on Thursday will return to the lower 90’s. Overnight lows will remain in the lower to middle 70’s.
We could start off the weekend a little on the wet side. Models are now hinting that a system could move in from our north Friday, bringing us some more rain. This system should move out by Saturday, leaving us with highs in the middle to lower 90’s, with overnight lows remaining in the lower to middle 70’s. Rainfall potential during the next few days will not be as high as it was for today. Models indicate that most of the area will see less than one inch of additional rainfall.
As we move into next week, things look to start off dry. As we move towards the middle of next week, we could see a weak disturbance bring us our next chance of rain. Models are still in disagreement on how much rain we could see next week, so our confidence on how much rain we will see is low. Highs next week will remain in the lower to middle 90’s, with overnight lows staying in the mid 70’s.
Today’s average High/Low: 91/70
