We are off to a comfortable start this morning, and temperatures will remain in the 60s and 70s through the noon hour. Between 1 and 6 p.m. temperatures will be in the 80s, even making a run at the upper 80s in some locations if we see enough sunshine.
(Forecast highs – Tuesday):
Like yesterday, a south and southeast wind will be breezy at times with sustained speeds of 10 to 20 miles per hour. Skies will be partly cloudy early, but an approaching upper level low will churn up clouds that will drift in our direction resulting in mostly cloudy skies at times this afternoon and evening. I have included a slight chance (20%) of rain today due to a warm front lifting out of the Gulf. Several forecast models show showers developing later this afternoon and evening, but most areas will stay dry.
(Futurecast indicating an isolated p.m. rain shower):
Tonight, the increase in cloud cover and humidity (due to our persistent south wind), will hold temperatures in the low to mid 60s.
We will see slight rain chances again Wednesday and Thursday as temperatures continue to run in the mid 80s.
The upper level disturbance will pull a frontal boundary through the region Friday and early Saturday. While rain won’t be heavy, scattered rain and thunderstorms will be possible during this time period. The likelihood of severe weather in the upcoming days is low, confined to mainly northeast Texas and Oklahoma. No widespread threat is expected to develop Friday and Saturday due to the cloud cover we will have in place.
