It will be another warm day, but the extreme heat is on its way out, and a tropical low will be moving in to provide cloud cover and rainfall for the remainder of the week.
The low is now to our southeast and rain is likely to pop up today across Arkansas/Louisiana and move east and southeast into east Texas as we move through the day. The best chance for rain and a few thunderstorms will be along and south of I-20, closer to where the center of the low is tracking along the coastline.
Due to the scattered nature of the storms, some areas may get missed by the rainfall today, but partly to mostly cloudy skies are expected in all areas, which should help hold temperatures in the low and mid 90s and limit blazing sunshine at times.
A chance for rain will carry into the evening and overnight hours with the low moving to our west on the 4th of July. We will continue to see a chance of rain and intermittent cloud cover on the 4th, which will again hold our temperatures in the low 90s, and some areas in the 80s.
Scattered rain chances (30-40%) are expected each day through the upcoming weekend. Forecast models continue to show total rainfall accumulations over the next 7 days in the 1 to 1.5 inch range, with some areas north of I-30 receiving less than inch. Highs will run in the low 90s well into next week.
