What a difference 24 hours makes, as we are under clear skies this morning and we won’t have to deal with any rain or thunder for most of the remaining week.
Temperatures are in the mid and upper 40s this morning as cooler air is moving in behind yesterday’s cold front. Wind is out of the north at 5 to 10 miles per hour. The north breeze and high pressure to our west is steering dry air into the region. Expect all-day sunshine with high temperatures in the upper 60s and low 70s. It is going to be glorious. Lows tonight will be on the cold side as some areas across the northern ArkLaTex fall into the 30s.
The dry pattern will continue tomorrow with highs again near 70 degrees. High pressure moves east Thursday and that will open the door to increasing clouds ahead of our next cold front. It will be slightly warmer Thursday and Friday as highs return to the mid 70s. We may see slight rain chances develop Friday, but the majority of the rain will hold off until the cold front arrives Saturday.
Saturday will start out warm, but the passing front will bring showers and a few storms and temperatures that drop off during the day. At this point a low end severe weather threat may be possible with some storms producing large hail late Friday or Saturday. The SPC has an area near the ArkLaTex in their day 4 (Friday/early Saturday a.m.) severe weather outlook.
Highs will fall into the 50s Sunday as we get a taste of the cold air again.
Rainfall accumulations over the next 7 days will be near an inch or less in most areas, with the majority of those raindrops falling Saturday.
