Don’t put your rain gear away just yet! More rain is in the forecast. Our rain chances Tuesday will be slight at best. However, our rain chances will pick up on Wednesday as a cold front drops south into the area. At least rain chances will linger into the weekend, too.
The overnight will be warm and muggy. Lows will be near or just above 70 degrees. Expect a partly to mostly cloudy sky. Patchy fog could develop late tonight through Tuesday morning. The fog could be thick in some areas.
Overall, Tuesday is going to be a very warm, almost hot, and humid day. Temperatures will be just above average for this time of year. Highs will be in the upper 80s to near 90 degrees. Keep in mind, heat indices will be in the mid 90s. A few showers and storms will be possible Tuesday afternoon, mainly along and south of I-20. The best chance of rain may stay just south of the area.
More showers and storms will be possible late Tuesday tonight through Wednesday afternoon as a cold front drops through the area. This front will bring in scattered to numerous showers and storms on Wednesday. This front could also bring in a shot of cooler and less humid air. Depending on how far south this front makes it will depend on how far south the cooler and less humid air makes it. If the front stalls out just south of the ArkLaTex, then places along and north of I-20 will likely only see the benefits from this front. Highs on Wednesday and Thursday will be near or just above 80 degrees. A few places could struggle to hit 80 degrees. Temperatures could be bottom out in the low to mid 60s Wednesday night, which could be the coolest temperatures since May.
By the end of the work week, this front could lift back north as a warm front, so Friday and the upcoming weekend will likely be warmer and more humid. Highs will be in the mid to upper 80s. A few showers and storms will be possible at times. This weekend does not look nearly as wet as last weekend.
Have a good night!
