LIve Weather Update from Facebook Live Wednesday 830pm:
Temperatures are going up and rain chances are going down.
Yesterday’s relief from above average temperatures was short lived. An upper level high pressure system is working its way back into the ArkLaTex. As this dome of high pressure positions itself back over the four states region, it will cause our rain chances to remain low and our temperatures to rise.
Tonight, skies will clear. Lows will bottom out in the lower 70’s across the area. Thursday, things will remain mostly dry and temperatures will rebound nicely into the mid 90’s. Northwestern portions of the ArkLaTex could see a passing shower on Thursday as a disturbance moves through SE OK and NE TX. However, most locations will not remain dry.
For the rest of your work week, things will continue to remain dry and warmer than average. Highs will climb back into the mid 90’s, with lows remaining in the lower to middle 70’s.
This weekend, temperatures will stay slightly above average with highs in the middle to lower 90’s and lows in the mid 70’s. We will stay dry through Saturday and Sunday, but rain chances will begin to increase as we close out the weekend.
As we head into next week, our high pressure system begins to weaken somewhat. This will allow for us to see our next chance of rain for Monday through Wednesday of next week. Highs will drop just a bit into the lower 90’s, with overnight lows remaining in the low to middle 70’s. As of now, not much rainfall is expected between now and next week.
Average High/Low for today’s date: 89/68
