Cold front brings in rain late Friday into Saturday

Our rain chances will start to pick up late Friday into Saturday as our next cold drops south across the area. Cooler and drier will also follow the front. Temperatures could tumble into the low to mid 40s Sunday night.

The overnight will be mostly cloudy. A few showers can’t be ruled out, mainly across NE TX and SE OK. Most will stay dry, though. Lows will be in the mid 50s. Have a light jacket handy first thing Friday morning.

Most of Friday is going to be a mostly cloudy and cool day. Highs will be in the mid to upper 60s. A few places could hit 70 degrees. Our rain chances will start to increase late Friday afternoon and evening as a cold front drops from north to south across the area. Rain will develop across the I-30 corridor and spread farther south Friday night into Saturday morning.

Rain could impact a few Friday night football games. The best chance of rain Friday evening will be along and north of the I-30 corridor. Shreveport-Bossier, the rest of the I-20 corridor and points to the south will likely stay dry. Not everyone will need an umbrella. However, everyone will need a light jacket. Temperatures will slowly drop through the 60s and into the upper 50s throughout the game.

The start of the weekend could be wet for some. The best chance for rain Saturday morning will be along and south of I-20. Our rain chances will wrap up from north to south Saturday morning into Saturday afternoon. Luckily, the rain is not going to last forever on Saturday. Most of it will be south of the area by late Saturday afternoon. The sky will clear from north to south Saturday afternoon. Highs on Saturday will be in the mid to upper 60s.

Sunday will definitely be the better half of the weekend. Sunday will be dry, and, finally, we should see a fair amount of sunshine. Despite the sunshine, highs will only be in the low to mid 60s. Our average high for this time of year is 78 degrees. With a mostly clear sky and quiet conditions, temperatures will tumble Sunday night. Overnight lows will be in the low to mid 40s. A few places along and north of I-30 could drop into the upper 30s Monday morning.

Below average temperatures will continue into next week. Highs will be in the 60s and lows will be near or just above 50 degrees. Our rain chances will start to pick back up towards the middle of next week as another storm system impacts the ArkLaTex. More heavy rain will be possible.

Have nice night!
