A much deserved comfortable and dry Fall weather pattern will set up today, and it will carry through at least next Tuesday.
This morning, we still have some cloud cover lingering overhead north of I-20, with temperatures in the 40s and 50s. Where the clouds have broken we are seeing patchy fog set up and we may see some isolated pockets of dense fog through sunrise if the wind goes calm in some areas. We currently have a northwest breeze of 5 to 10 miles per hour.
That northwest wind is pushing a lot of dry air into the region, and we will finally see a decent amount of sunshine break through today. This will help push high temperatures into the upper 60s in many areas, and possibly a few of us in Louisiana/Texas may warm the low 70s. Wind will be breezy out of the north and northwest at 10 to 15 miles per hour, with partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies later this morning through the early evening. No rain is expected.
If you are headed to the football fields tonight, expect kickoff temperatures in the low 60s and 4th quarter temperatures in the 50s. We will stay dry this evening.
A fantastic pattern is in place for the weekend, and we will see cool mornings in the 50s, and pleasant/warm & sunny afternoons. Highs on Saturday will be in the mid 70s, and upper 70s/low 80s on Sunday.
A dry front will roll in late Sunday into early Monday dropping highs into the low 70s early next week. . There are some forecast models showing rain arriving Halloween, with a few other models showing the rain holding off until Thursday. For now I am leaning towards the Wednesday/Halloween arrival. This system may also bring the ingredients for a few strong/severe storms. Stay tuned to any changes!
