Hard Freeze expected Tuesday night over all of the Arklatex. Big warm up on the way for the weekend. Next chance for rain returns Sunday.
Snow ended across most of the Arklatex Tuesday morning. Generally one to three inches of snow fell on most of the area with lighter amounts over the extreme south and northern parts of the region. Temperatures Tuesday morning fell into the upper teens to low 20s.
Now that the snow has ended and clouds are moving out, our main concern becomes some very cold temperatures Tuesday night and Wednesday night. Temperatures Tuesday night will dip into the low to mid teens over most of the area.
Sunshine continues Wednesday but we will only warm to the low to mid 30s and part of the area could again stay below freezing. We will likely see lows in the mid to upper teens Wednesday night. A quick warming trend will then begin. Thursday highs will return to the 40s. We’ll see upper 40s to low 50s Friday and then 60s return just in time for the weekend.
Our next disturbance will then arrive Sunday. Expect lots of clouds in advance of this disturbance Saturday and Sunday. Rain will become likely Sunday. Models indicate that we should expect to receive anywhere from 1/2 to 1″ of rainfall Sunday into Sunday night. A second disturbance could bring another shot of rain by the middle of next week.
Average High/Low for today’s date: 57/36.
