After a cold and wet start to the week, rain continued off and on through Wednesday. Heavy rain was found across much of the Ark-La-Tex. Thursday may have had clouds, but it was dry. However, there has been very little time to dry out. We started Friday with cloudy skies, light NE winds and lows in the 50s to near 60. Rain was noted in north Texas and southern Oklahoma. This area will move eastward today. Isolated showers may pop up anywhere at anytime but rain will increase late day ahead of a cold front moving into the I-30 corridor. Rain moves south overnight into Saturday pushing into the I-20 corridor around dawn with lows in the 50s once again. Highs Saturday will range through the 60s ahead of the cold front followed by falling temperatures. Rain moves out by late Saturday with partial clearing.
The “one dry day” pattern continues Sunday with mostly sunny skies. Lows will be in the 40s to near 50 and highs either side of 60. After one dry day, Monday will see an increase in clouds with an outside chance of isolated showers. Lows will be in the low to mid 40s (the coldest of the season so far) and highs either side of 60. Tuesday will find scattered rain with lows in the 40s to near 50 and highs in the mid 60s. Wednesday will find an increase in rain with lows near 50 and highs in the low to mid 60s. Heavy rain is possible overnight. Possible heavy rain continues into Thursday with lows in the 50s and highs in the mid 60s. Rain will be scattered Friday with little change in temperatures. Will the “one dry day” pattern continue? We’ll see. However, one thing is certain: we are not in control of that.
