High pressure continues to dominate our weather pattern, meaning one more day of mid and upper 90s heat that has been pushing record highs for the past few days. Thankfully, the high will move east soon opening us up for higher rain chances, and a much needed cool down.
For your Wednesday.. we will be in the 70s through 8 a.m., then in the 80s through 11 a.m., before we hit 90 degrees and stay there through the afternoon. Most locations will see highs in the 94-97 degree range again today. A few pop-up showers that may last for a few minutes are possible, but most areas will again miss the needed rainfall.
Looking towards our next cool down.. a front will move towards the ArkLaTex Friday increasing our rain chances late this week and into the weekend. The best chance for rain as of now looks to be Saturday and Sunday, with rain perhaps lingering into early next week as the front stalls across the region. Highs will fall into the 80s. We may see some low 80s for highs across the northern ArkLaTex this weekend.
If the forecast models are correct, another cold front will follow on the heels of the weekend front late next week bringing our first ‘fall-like’ temperature drop. Lows may fall into the 40s and 50s for a few days across the northern ArkLaTex, with below normal afternoon highs in all areas. As of now, a few days with highs in the 70s and low 80s may be possible.
A corridor of heavy rainfall may develop this weekend into next week. 2 to 3 inches of rain looks possible in some areas, with potentially higher accumulations in future forecasts. Stay tuned!
