Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image

This weekend isn't going to be a washout, but it's not going to be dry either. Scattered showers and storms will be possible on both Saturday and Sunday. Even though many will not be washed out, now is good time to think of back up plan just in case a downpour does find you. For many, this weekend is going to be hot and humid. Our rain chances will continue to increase early next week as a cold front drops south into the area.

Today has been another hot and humid day. Highs will be in the mid to upper 90s across a good chunk of the area, with max heat indices close to 105 degrees in some spots. Make sure to pack some extra water if your plans take you outside this afternoon or evening. Temperatures won't drop below 90 degrees until after 8PM. Heat indices or 'feels-like' temperatures won't below 100 degrees until after 7PM. Even though most will not need their rain gear, a few showers and storms can't be ruled out this afternoon or evening, mainly across parts of SW AR and NW LA.

Tonight will be warm and muggy. Lows will be in the mid to upper 70s. A stray shower will be possible north of I-30.

Saturday will be a hot and humid day for most. Highs will be in the mid 90s. Keep in mind, the humidity will make it feel like it's above 100 degrees. Even though most will not have to deal with dangerous heat, you won't want to over do it outside in the heat of the day. During the afternoon, scattered showers and storms will develop north of I-20 and develop further south later in the day. Sunday will be a carbon copy of Saturday. Highs will be in the mid 90s, while max heat index values will be above 100 degrees. More scattered showers and storms will be possible.

Most of Monday is going to be a dry day. However, our rain chances will increase late Monday into Tuesday morning as a cold front slides through the area. This front will bring in scattered showers and storms, and, hopefully, knock our temperatures and humidity levels down. Afternoon highs by the middle of next week will only be near 90 degrees. Overnight lows will be in the upper 60s in many spots.

Even though the threat of strong to severe storms is low over the next several days, a stronger storm capable of producing strong wind gusts, heavy rain and frequent lightning can't be ruled out. The heaviest rain will likely fall across parts of SW AR where 0.5"-1.5" of rain will be possible by the middle of next week. Rainfall totals across most of E TX will be between a trace and a 0.25"

Have a great weekend!
