Sunny weather pattern returns Thursday and continues into the weekend. Next shot at rain returns Sunday. Temperatures to stay reasonably close to normal in the week ahead.
An upper level disturbance brought a rather damp and dreary Wednesday. So far the heaviest rains have fallen over the NW half of the Arklatex. Look for the focus of the rain to gradually shift south Wednesday evening. The rain will also end from NW to SE during the late evening hours. As the disturbance moves away, expect the clouds to gradually begin to decrease overnight.
Temperatures Wednesday night will be below normal as we bottom out in the upper 30s over the northern edge of the area where the clouds depart sooner. Lows elsewhere will be in the low to middle 40s. Sunshine will return to the Arklatex Thursday. Consequently, temperatures will be warmer but still below normal. Look for highs in the low to mid 60s.
We will continue with a small warming trend and dry conditions through Saturday. Daytime highs will eventually recover to the upper 60s to low 70s. Overnight lows will warm to the upper 40s to low 50s. Another disturbance will quickly move through the area Sunday. This system is taking a more northerly course across the country so any rain that we see should be light and somewhat scattered. It is possible that much of the area could stay dry Sunday. Another weak disturbance could bring a shot at some rain by the middle of next week. Daytime highs will stay close to normal into early next week. We could see above normal temperatures return by the end of the week with highs warming well into the 70s and lows warming well into the 50s.
Average High/Low for today’s date: 70/48.
