Rain threat shifts north to start the work week. Near normal temperatures quickly return. Most of next week looks dry with rain chances increasing next weekend.
Sunday was a mostly cloudy day around the Arklatex. Showers and thunderstorms increased over the hear of the area during the morning and move through the northern half of the area.
Look for a few more scattered showers and thunderstorms Sunday evening that will gradually shift north again Sunday night. Monday will see the return of lots of sunshine over much of the area. We will still see a chance for a few scattered showers and thunderstorms mainly over the northern quarter of the area.
The disturbance that has been responsible for our rain lately will move into the middle of the country during the next few days. It will be replace with upper level high pressure that will extend from the Gulf of Mexico into the Rockies. This high will greatly limit our rainfall chances and increase temperatures. Look for daytime highs to return to the middle 90s for most of the week which pretty close to normal. Overnight lows in the week ahead will settle into the middle 70s.
Another decent system will move into the upper Midwest late in the week and will work to weaken the upper ridge. This will allow an increase in our rainfall chances as we go through the weekend. This system may give us a chance to see several days of rainfall chances once again as we move past next weekend.
Average High/Low for today’s date: 95/73.
