Gulf disturbance to bring more clouds and chance for rain. Rest of the week looks warm and dry. Pattern change could be on the way next week.
Most of the Arklatex experienced plenty of sunshine for most of Monday. A disturbance in the northern Gulf of Mexico is spreading lots of clouds into the southeast half of the area. These clouds will continue to overspread our area Monday night. Rain will be possible in spots Monday night and Tuesday. Right now it appears that the rain could be heaviest and most widespread Tuesday afternoon over NE TX and SE OK. Once this disturbance moves out to the west, upper level high pressure will regain control of our weather resulting in more heat and humidity for the rest of the week.
In the longer range it still looks like we will see the change in the weather pattern across the country that I mentioned last week. This will begin to occur next Monday when a cold front moves through our area. Right now rainfall totals from this frontal passage are less than impressive. You can see that models continue to show weekly totals of well below an inch. I do think that we’ll see a decent drop in temperatures for the middle of next week. Highs will likely fall to the 70s. Lows will fall to the low to mid 50s. It is possible that we could see a few 40s over the nothern edge of the area. Stay Tuned!
Average High/Low for today’s date: 83/59.
