Happy Saturday ArkLaTex! We’re in for quiet night as the rest of the evening will be dry and under mostly clear skies. Overnight lows will dip into the low to mid 70s.
Sunday will mostly be a repeat of Saturday, but high temperatures are only in the mid 90s. Rain chances are still slim so most of us will see mostly sunny skies and summertime heat. Otherwise, no weather worries for any church or brunch plans.
If you were hoping for better rain chances, we have increased rain chances to around 20 percent Monday through much of the next work week. Unfortunately, the weather pattern keeps us hot and dry to start the work week. Monday and Tuesday highs continue in the mid 90s.
Keeping an eye on the tropics as Tropical Storm Humberto strengthens. Portions of the Bahamas could see gusty winds and heavy rain, but the government in the Bahamas canceled the Tropical Storm warnings. We’re also watching a disturbance in the Gulf of Mexico. So far, there’s only a 30 percent chance of development within the next 5 days. It’s expected to move into the northwestern Gulf but impacts look fairly limited so far for the ArkLaTex.

Have a wonderful weekend and good luck to your favorite football teams!
