FIRST ALERT: Keep an umbrella handy through midweek

FIRST ALERT: Keep an umbrella handy through midweek

It's probably going to be a good idea to keep an umbrella handy through Wednesday.

Scattered to widely scattered showers and storms will be possible Tuesday and Wednesday.

Our rain chances will go down toward the end of the workweek and into the weekend, but they won't be completely zero.

Our rain chances will be at their best in the heat of the day Tuesday and Wednesday.

Even though a stray shower can't be ruled out, most of the area will wake up to mostly cloudy and dry conditions.

Temperatures will be in the mid- to upper 70s.

By 4 p.m. Tuesday, scattered to widely scattered showers and storms will have developed across the ArkLaTex.

Not everyone will see rain Tuesday, though.

And even though the threat of severe weather is very low, a strong storm capable of strong wind gusts, heavy and lightning can't be ruled out.

As the sun goes down, so will our rain chances.

Most of the shower and thunderstorm activity that develops Tuesday afternoon will likely be gone by 10 p.m.

With the clouds and rain around, mainly places might struggle to hit 90 degrees.

Wednesday will be a carbon copy of Tuesday. Scattered to widely scattered and storms will develop in the heat of day. Highs will be near 90 degrees.

By the end of the week, our temperatures will start to sizzle. With fewer clouds and more sunshine, temperatures will be in the mid- to upper 90s.
