Happy Sunday ArkLaTex. Fog cleared early this morning and we’ve been left with another afternoon high temperatures in the low 60s due to persistent cloud cover. Skies cleared some this afternoon, but are expected to become cloudy once again tonight with foggy conditions possible along the southern end of the ArkLaTex.

This evening, temperatures after sunset will reside in the upper 50s and wont budge much due to the cloudy skies. This prevents heat from escaping into space and so it re-radiates back to the ground. Overnight tonight, we’ll fall into the upper 50s with cloudy skies.

Monday afternoon into the evening, a cold front will swing through the ArkLaTex entering the very northwestern zones first. This will bring a slight chance for rain and a few rumbles of thunder Monday afternoon/evening. Temperatures ahead of the front will warm up near 80 degrees.

On Tuesday, we'll see better coverage in rain during the day and into the evening for some. Thunderstorms are also likely, but so far, none of it is looking to be severe. High temperatures on Tuesday's highs will likely happen earlier in the day with temperatures struggling to reach the low 50s. By the afternoon, most areas will likely be in the low to mid 40s.
