We are expecting a few lingering showers and thunderstorms across the ArkLaTex today, but rain chances are lower than yesterday, and some sunshine will result in warmer temperatures. 

The most likely areas for rain today will be across east Texas and Oklahoma. As temperatures warm a few showers and isolated thunderstorms will develop and move south to north across the region. Much of Louisiana and Arkansas will stay dry, under otherwise mostly cloudy skies. High temperatures will be in the 80s and low 90s.

TROPICAL STORM GORDON UPDATE: 

Tropical Storm Gordon is now over the warm water of the open Gulf. It will likely continue its northwest movement today making landfall late tonight or early tomorrow morning near the Alabama/Mississippi border. It will then get drawn northward towards the ArkLaTex. We may begin to experience some outer rain bands Wednesday before the center of the storm passes close to our counties in southern Arkansas Thursday. 

Wind speeds will diminish as it moves inland, but it will still be capable of producing some heavy rainfall at times. Right now, most of the ArkLaTex is south and west of the center of circulation. This means we will be on what is considered to be the ‘dry’ side of the storm where dry air getting pulled into the center can hinder the development of rain bands. Several forecast models show rain totals later this week in the 1 to 2 inch range in all areas. There still appears to be a corridor of possible 3 inch totals closer to the center that may impact southern Arkansas. Widespread flash flooding is not anticipated due to the ongoing drought, and low river and reservoir levels. Thursday may turn into the rainy day under the storm, with a gradual tapering of rainfall Friday into the weekend.
