More rain Friday, but drier weather settles in this weekend

Throughout the rest of the night, the rain will be on the increase again across portions of east Texas and northwest Louisiana. Locally heavy rain is possible, but widespread flooding concerns are not expected. Temperatures will hold in the low 70s.

Friday will likely have more rain around, especially during the morning hours. By afternoon the rain should become more scattered and not as widespread and by evening many places will start drying out. Clouds and rain will hold temperatures back again. The I-30 corridor may be stuck in the 70s. To the south enough sun may peek through breaks in the clouds to push temperatures into the low to mid 80s.

We’ll see less rain and more heat return over the weekend. Some isolated showers are possible Saturday and the northern ArkLaTex may pick up a few storms by the end of the day Sunday. Temperatures will return to the upper 80s and lower 90s.

Fall arrives Monday and a cold front may nudge into the I-30 corridor. It will help to fire up a few storms, but there should be little relief from the heat and humidity. We will still be hot with temperatures topping out in the lower 90s.

The remainder of next week is trending toward more late September heat. Barring any significant rain makers coming in, we’ll likely hold in the low 90s through the end of the month.

Have a good night!
