Thursday front to bring rain and big cool down

Futurecast

Clouds to stick around for several more days.  Wednesday and Thursday look warmer ahead of a strong front.  Cold returns for Friday and the weekend.  Winter precipitation is a remote possibility during the next week.

Tuesday was a cloudy and cool day around the Arklatex.  Temperatures were near or slightly below normal with highs in the low to mid 50s.  Look for the clouds to stay put until a cold front moves through late Thursday.  Ahead of the front temperatures will warm into the 60s for highs both Wednesday and Thursday.  Overnight lows ahead of the front will be in the 40s and 50s.  Look for showers and a few thunderstorms as the front moves through the area Thursday. I don’t expect any severe weather but we could see a quick 1/2 to 1″ of rain.  Colder air will then rush in behind the front.  It is a slight possibility that we could see a brief period of winter precip Thursday night into Friday morning.  Don’t expect many travel issues due to ground warmth if we see any winter precip and that is a big IF.  

Sunshine will return to the area from west to east Friday.  Look for much  colder temperatures for Friday and the first half of next week.  Highs will settle into the 40s and lows will mainly be in the 20s and 30s.  The first of next week could be rather interesting as we will have another disturbance bring a chance for some winter precipitation Monday night into Tuesday morning.  Models are hinting that this event could begin with a winter mix that will change over to all rain Tuesday.  We are still several days out from this system so expect the outlook to change somewhat. Stay Tuned!

Average High/Low for today’s date: 57/36.
