Weather week ahead: Dry until the weekend. Severe risk looks low.

Futurecast

Quiet weather pattern to continue until the weekend.  Thunderstorms expected Saturday but severe weather risk looks very low.

Tuesday proved to be a very windy day with lots of sunshine and warmer temperatures.  Temperatures began in the upper 40s to low 50s and warmed into the low to middle 80s.  Expect a bit of a cooling trend during the next few days as the dry weather pattern continues.  Highs Wednesday will likely reach the mid to upper 70s.  Highs should cool to the low to mid 70s by Friday and the weekend.  Overnight lows during this periods will eventually settle into the mid to upper 40s.  

This cool down is good news as a potent disturbance moves into the Arklatex this weekend.  Because temperatures will be cooler and moisture return from the gulf will be rather limited, the severe weather risk associated with the weekend system looks rather low.  The main issue that we will face this weekend will be the chance for some locally heavy rain at times.  I do anticipate some thunder but any severe weather concerns should be very isolated in scope.  Models are still indicating that we could see a decent amount of rain with totals exceeding two inches in spots.  

Most of the rain will fall in the Arklatex late Saturday and Saturday night.  We could see a few lingering showers for both Sunday and possibly Monday.  Sunshine and a warming trend should settle in by the middle of next week.

Average High/Low for today’s date: 76/53.
