Scattered afternoon storms stay in the forecast through the weekend.  Rain chances increase early next week. 

Thursday was another hot and humid day around the Arklatex.  Temperatures began in the mid 70s and climbed back into the mid to upper 90s in spots.  That heat has produced some scattered showers and thunderstorms that will likely end Thursday evening.  Look for this pattern to repeat itself for Friday and Saturday.  We will see a weak boundary make its way through the area Saturday.  Most models indicate that the rain associated with this feature will likely be focused over the southern half of the area.  

It now appears that the rain in the forecast will be most widespread Sunday night through Monday as what’s left of the boundary shifts back to the north very slowly.  Most models show that rainfall potential during the next week will likely exceed one inch over most of the area.  THe most optimistic model shows several inches possible over the heart of the area.  

Temperatures in the week ahead will vary depending on how much rain we see develop.  During days when the rain is scattered, high will likely be in the mid to upper 90s.  When the rain is most widespread, highs will likely be in the low 90s.  Overnight lows in the week ahead will likely be slightly above normal in the low to mid 70s.

The latest drought monitor shows that severe drought (areas in orange) have expanded during the past week.

Red River Balloon Rally Outlook:  Partly Cloudy, very warm and humid.  Rain chances look low.  Evening temps will fall out of the 90s and through the 80s

Average high/low for today’s date: 93/72.
