The weather pattern is on auto-pilot as we will continue to see mostly sunny skies, a few clouds at times, and warm temperatures. Due to the returning south wind we will likely see a slow increase in humidity in the upcoming days, before our next chance of rain and storms over the weekend.
Out the door at or before sunrise this morning temperatures will be in the upper 50s and low 60s. It will be another quick warm-up today with some areas pushing 80 degrees by noon, with highs forecast to reach the mid and possibly upper 80s.
More of the same tomorrow, before we see a few more clouds Friday. We could see an isolated shower or storm Friday due to the sea-breeze, but the main weather making disturbance will roll in this weekend. Storms will likely develop to our west Saturday afternoon then move into the ArkLaTex Saturday evening or Saturday night and continue into Sunday morning.
It does appear that we will see a threat for severe weather during this time, as the Storm Prediction Center continues to highlight us in their 15% or ‘slight risk’ area. High wind would be the main threat but an isolated tornado and large hail aren’t out of the question just yet.
We will also see another round of heavy rain, with models continuing to show a corridor of 1 to 2 inch rainfall accumulations somewhere across the ArkLaTex.
This rainfall will keep our lakes and rivers running high into next week. Most waterways continue to be in minor or moderate flood stage.
