Weather week ahead: Saturday night storms then dry and cooler

Futurecast

Strong to severe storms possible Saturday evening through Saturday night.  Most of the week ahead looks dry and cooler.

Friday was probably the most pleasant day of the week thanks to lots of sunshine and warmer temperatures.  Lows were in the upper 30s to low 40s.  Daytime highs soared into the low to middle 70s.  Changes are on the way Saturday as our next rain maker approaches the area.  This system will bring chance for a scattered shower or t’shower during the day.  Most of the stronger storms will likely hold off until Saturday evening and Saturday night.  The Storm Prediction indicates that we will see a slight risk for severe storms.  

Given that the storm storms’ arrival looks to be later Saturday evening and Saturday night, the main concerns will be wind and hail.  We still cannot rule out the chance for a tornado or two.  Rainfall potentiallooks relatively light for most of the area with amounts at 1/2″ or less.  We could have a few isolated spots that pick up an inch.

Cooler and drier air will then begin to invade the Arklatex Sunday and will stick around through the middle of next week.  Expect lots of sunshine during this period with lows in the 30s and 40s.  Daytime highs will be in the upper 50s to middle 60s.  We will start to warm up once again towards the end of the week with highs returning to the 70s and lows returning to the 40s and 50s.  Our next chance for rain looks to begin next Friday.

Average High/Low for today’s date:  68/45.

Have a great weekend!
