Dry weather pattern settles in for several days. More rain possible next weekend with the return of some cooler air.
In the wake of thunderstorms that rolled through the Arklatex Sunday night, Monday turned out to be a mostly sunny and pleasant day. Temperatures began in the upper 50s to low 60s and climbed to the mid to upper 70s. Expect below normal temperatures for the next few days despite the continuation of the sunny weather pattern. Daytime highs will be in mid to upper 60s overnight lows will be in the low to mid 40s.
We’ll see a warming trend to end the work week. Clouds will increase Thursday and Friday. Daytime highs will likely return to the mid 70s. Overnight lows will return to the 50s. Expect a slight chance for rain to return to the area by Friday. That rain threat will increase Saturday as another cold front moves through the area. It once again looks like timing may be on our side. The front will likely move through Saturday morning bring a chance for some showers and thunderstorms. Right now, I’m not too concerned about severe weather as the most unstable air will likely be to the south of the Arklatex where the front arrives later.
Models now indicate that the stall advertised earlier will not happen. The means the front should push clear of our area allowing the return of well below normal temperatures to close the weekend and begin the work week. Daytime Sunday and Monday will likely be in the 50s. Overnight lows will be in the upper 30s to low 40s.
Don’t expect too much rain in the week ahead as models indicate that pretty much all of the Arklatex will receive less than one inch of rain.
Average High/Low for today’s date: 72/48.
