Sunshine to continue through the work week. Rain to return just in time for the weekend. Severe weather cannot be ruled out.
Tuesday was a quite and pleasant day across the Arklatex. Temperatures began in the 30s across the north and the 40s across the south. Daytime highs climbed into the mid 60s across the north to the low 70s across the south. Cooler air will continue to move into the area Tuesday night and Wednesday. Temperatures will dip into the 30s across the all of the Arklatex with lows Wednesday morning across the northern half of the area close to freezing. Lows will be in the mid to upper 30s over the southern half of the area. Daytime highs Wednesday will dip to below normal levels with readings staying in the 50s over most of the area.
Expect a warming trend for the rest of the week. Highs should return to the 70s by Friday and Saturday. Overnight lows should return to teh 50s by the weekend. This warming trend will occur in advance of a storm system that will bring a chance for some showers and thunderstorms Saturday and Saturday night. The jury is still out on if we will see any severe weather. As of right now it appears that the chance will be highest to the north and east of the Arklatex. Models have backed off somewhat on the amount of rain that we might see with totals likely staying less than one inch.
We will likely begin next week with some sunshine Monday and Tuesday. We will also turn cooler again with highs dipping into the 60s and lows returning to the 30s and 40s. Unfortunately, more rain can be expected by the middle of next week.
Average High/Low for today’s date: 67/44
