Warm and mainly dry weather pattern to continue into next week. Models hinting at decent rain for the last half of next week.
The Arklatex experienced yet another gorgeous day Tuesday thanks to plenty of sunshine and pleasant temperatures. We began the day with temperatures in the upper 30s to low 40s. Despite that chilly start, temperatures soared to the low to middle 70s. A fast moving disturbance will bring more clouds and a very slight chance for a shower late Tuesday night into Wednesday. Most of the area will stay dry and temperatures will stay above normal near and behind this system. Look for Wednesday daytime highs to be in the upper 60s to low 70s.
Sunshine will return to the area Thursday and will likely stick around into early next week. Expect daytime highs during this period to be in the upper 60s to mid 70s. Overnight lows will be in the mid to upper 40s.
Models are still hinting at a large upper level trough setting up over the southwestern part of the country by the middle of next week. Both long range models indicate that we could see at least an inch of rain from now through next Thursday. One model seen below shows more than 3″ possible in spots.
I wouldn’t bet the house on getting that much, but it’s looking promising that we’ll get a decent supply of much needed rain at some point next week. If you are wondering about cold. Models are still hinting at some cold air coming down by the middle of December. We could see temps more than 10 degrees below normal. Stay Tuned.
Average High/Low for today’s date: 63/41
