Rain to return to the Arklatex late Monday night through Tuesday night. More rain Thursday, Friday, and Saturday with severe storms possible Saturday.
Monday was a mostly cloudy, windy and chilly day across the Arklatex. Temperatures struggleed to make it into the upper 40s to low 50s. We will stay rather cool for the next few days as rain returns to our weather picture. That rain will increase across the area late Monday night and will continue off and on through most of Tuesday night. While a rumble of thunder will be possible, severe weather is unlikely. We still could pick up more than an inch of rain in spots from this first of three weather systems that will move across our area this week.

A second disturbance will bring more rain to much of the area Thursday and Friday. This system looks to be the weakest of the three. You can expect a gradualy warm up during this time as tropical air gets trasnported into our area.
Severe weather will be a possibility Saturday as a strong disturbance moves across the middle of the country Friday night and Saturday. Expect showers and thunderstorms to be on the increase during the day Saturday. Some of the storms could become severe with all severe weather threats possible including several tornadoes. As of this writing, it appears that the threat may be highest over the northern half of the Arklatex. However, we are still several days away from this event and things will could change.
Models show that if you add up all of the rain from the three disturbances, we could receive more than three inches in spots. Stay Tuned.
Average High/Low for today’s date: 62/40.
