Happy Sunday ArkLaTex! We were greeted with a strong line of heavy rain and thunderstorms early this morning, but has since lightened up. One good thing to come with the rain and clouds are the temperatures staying below the 90s for many in the area.
Tonight, lingering shower will continue to fall, but most will be dry and cloudy. Temperatures will be in the 70s through the evening with calm winds out of the south. Overnight tonight, rain and maybe a few storms will develop, but not as bad as what we saw this past night. Temperatures will fall to the low and mid 70s.
Monday: Monday morning will start off cloudy to overcast but mostly dry. Wont rule out a stray shower, but most should remain dry. By the afternoon, widely scattered showers and thunderstorms will be back once again for the ArkLaTex so keep the rain gear close by once again. Temperatures are only expected to reach the mid and upper 80s with some areas staying cooler. Areas with less rain will be warmer.
Rainfall amounts through Monday evening will range between 1-2inches of rain. Locally heavier amounts are possible where rain bands set up and stay.
Rainy days continue for Tuesday and Wednesday, but begin tapering off by the end of the work week. In exchange, we’ll see temperatures rise back in the low 90s.
TROPICS: Tropical Storm Edouard has formed and still has no impact on the United States. We’re also watching a disturbance in the northern Gulf that only has a 40% chance of development in the next five days as it moves northeast over Florida. We’ll keep any eye on further development.
Happy 4th everyone!
