A weak front to bring a slight chance for rain Wednesday. Dry weather returns until the weekend. Thunderstorms possible Sunday and Monday. Severe weather cannot be ruled out.
Tuesday was a mostly sunny and pleasant day around the Arklatex. Temperatures began in the upper 30s to mid-40s. Daytime highs returned to near normal levels in the upper 60s to low 70s. After another quiet night Tuesday night with lows in the mid-40s, clouds will increase during the day Wednesday as a weak cold front approaches the area from the north. Temperatures will be near or slightly below normal with highs in the mid to upper 60s. Rainfall chances with the front look to be rather slim with the best chance for some mainly light rain over the northern half of the area late Wednesday afternoon through the evening hours. See the latest outlook from Futurecast below.
The rest of the work week should be dry and pleasant with near normal temperatures. Expect plenty of sunshine both Thursday and Friday. Daytime highs will likely return to the upper 60s to low 70s. Overnight lows will mainly be in the low to mid-40s.
Another slow moving disturbance will bring clouds back to the Arklatex Saturday. We will see a slight chance for some rain. Most of the rain will likely hold out until late Sunday through Monday when we will likely experience a few rounds of showers and thunderstorms. This system doesn’t look to be one that will create a big severe weather outbreak at this time, however, severe weather will be possible with all severe weather threats on the table. We’ll have more details on this weather maker as we get closer to the weekend. The good news is that models do not show much rain. Rainfall totals from now through next Monday will likely stay less than one inch for most of the area.
