Heat and Humidity Returns to the ArkLaTex

The heat and humidity is back as we head towards a more summer time pattern. Expect a chance for showers and thunderstorms to finish the weekend and into the coming work week. A wetter and possibly stormier day is expected for Father’s Day.

Tonight’s lows will only drop to the mid 70s for most of the ArkLaTex. Winds will remain out of the south at a breezy 10-15 miles per hour. We’ll gradually clear out and remain with mostly clear skies before tomorrow’s weather rolls in overnight and into the morning.

On Sunday, Father's Day will reach a high of 90 degrees with mostly cloudy skies. Our chance for seeing heavy downpours and a strong thunderstorm increase on tomorrow as well. So far, the morning looks like the main bulk of rain and storms staying along and north the I-30 corridor, but becoming more widespread by the afternoon and evening.

Next week, the summer time pattern returns. With Gulf moisture returning, we'll continue to see hot and humid weather once again. This means a daily chance for showers and storms with highs at the beginning of the work week starting off in the upper 80s.

Enjoy your weekend!
