Isolated rain chances remain for the rest of the week. A pattern change is in store for this weekend.
Our summertime pattern that we have grown use to is going to stick around for the rest of our work week. A few showers and storms will be possible Tuesday through Saturday. If you get caught under one of these showers, consider yourself lucky.
This morning, an upper level disturbance that is working its way into northern Texas has caused a few showers and storms to develop over portions of NE TX and SW AR. As this disturbance moves closer to the ArkLaTex, more showers and storms could develop across NW LA. Futurecast is hinting that these storms could last into the overnight hours Tuesday, and even into the early morning hours of Wednesday. Isolated storm chances will remain in the forecast Wednesday through Saturday of this week. Highs this week will remain in the lower to middle 90’s, with overnight lows staying in the middle to lower 70’s.
Any rain that we can get will be extremely beneficial. Many areas across the Four States region are in a moderate drought.
On Sunday, our next weather maker begins to work it’s way into our area. A plume of moisture will move into the ArkLaTex from the Gulf of Mexico from Sunday into Monday. Models are showing that portions of the area could see between 1-2 inches of rain, with some even higher totals across portions of east Texas.
Once this heavy rain moves into our area, temperatures will drop below average with daytime highs in the middle to upper 80’s for Sunday and Monday. Overnight lows will remain in the middle to lower 70’s, with a few upper 60’s.
Things look to dry out as we move into the middle of next week, with highs climbing back into the middle to lower 90’s.
Average High/Low for today: 90/69
