FIRST ALERT: Getting a little warmer and drier

The overnight will be mostly cloudy. The clouds should start to breakup late tonight through Thursday morning. Lows will be in the low to mid 50s. A jacket will be a must Thursday morning. However, you’ll be able to leave your rain gear at home.

After yesterday and today, Thursday is going to feel like a heat wave! Highs will be in the mid to upper 60s. A few places could hit 70 degrees. We should even see a few peeks of sunshine throughout the day. Despite a mostly cloudy sky, most places will stay dry.

Our next cold front will impact the ArkLaTex late Friday into Saturday. Our rain chances will increase from north to south Friday evening through Saturday morning. Luckily, most of the rain will be out of the area by Saturday afternoon. Most of Friday will just be mostly cloudy and dry. Highs will be in the upper 60s. Rain will develop across the I-30 corridor Friday evening. This is where some high school football games could be impacted by rain. The rain will develop farther south Friday night into Saturday morning. Highs on Saturday will be in the mid to upper 60s.

From this distance, Sunday is looking like the better half of the weekend. It's going to be dry and feature a fair amount of sunshine. The sun is going to put the 'sun' in Sunday on Sunday. It's still not going to be warm, though. Highs will only be in the mid 60s. Sunday night is going to be chilly. Overnight lows will be in the mid 40s. This could be the coolest night of the fall season so far.

Below average temperatures are expected for the start of next week. Highs will be in the low to mid 60s and lows will range from the upper 40s to low 50s. It looks like our rain chances will start to pick back up towards the middle of next week.

Have nice night!
