Happy Sunday ArkLaTex! We’re tracking another warm day compared to the actual temperatures with heat index values back in the 100s. Heat indices will continue to rise this week with minimal rain chances in the forecast. Stay hydrated this week!
Today: Highs today were in the upper 80s and low 90s. By late afternoon, some of us will see pop up showers and thunderstorms producing brief heavy rain and lightning and gusty winds. For those of us not experiencing rain, we’ll experience the south’s beloved humidity. Heat index values will be in the upper 90s and low 100s once again.
Monday: could see heavy rain near I-30 and north near 5am in the morning hours, elsewhere, it’ll stay cloudy and dry. Typical summertime rain and storms are possible again during the afternoon. Thankfully tomorrow should be free from Saharan Dust so those that have allergies wont have to blame it on the dust anymore. Unfortunately, we could see more hazy skies by Tuesday and Wednesday!
Tuesday: things are getting a little toasty. That’s because heat index values will rise and some areas will be at or near 105, which may warrant heat advisories. I expect head advisories are issued as early as Tuesday and continue into Wednesday and Thursday.
SO far, the 4th of July weekend is looking mostly dry. As of now, only a 20% chance of rain for the ArkLaTex with highs continuing in the low 90s! As we get closer and more details, we’ll continue to update you on what you need to know for your holiday!
Have a great Sunday!
