Warm and mostly sunny Monday, dry week before weekend rain


After a week of heavy rain and rising waterways, just what the doctor ordered this week as we are looking at dry conditions in most areas through Friday. 

It is a pleasant May morning with temperatures in the 50s under mostly clear skies. High pressure building to our west will keep the ArkLaTex dry this week sending all the storm systems in the weather pattern to our north. 

As is typical when high pressure and dry air are in control, we will see a big temperature swing today. After starting out in the 50s we will warm into the low 80s in most areas this afternoon under mostly sunny skies. 

We may see a few additional clouds tonight and tomorrow making it partly cloudy as a weak disturbance passes overhead. Due to the dry air ahead of this system, I don’t expect we’ll see any rain, but if we do it will be north of I-30. See the latest loop of futurecast below:

Temperatures will warm through the mid 80s most of the week, possibly reaching the upper 80s by Friday. It looks like a chance of rain will return to the region late in the upcoming weekend.
