Happy Monday ArkLaTex. An upper level weather system has been keeping our mornings and afternoons wet and stormy. This pattern is here to stay for the first half of the work week, but the latter half will dry out and warm up.

Overnight and into tomorrow morning for Tuesday, more rain and a maybe a thunderstorm will greet us during the morning. Temperatures tomorrow morning will be in the low to mid 70s.

Tuesday: expect another round of widely scattered rain and thunderstorms. Not expecting a severe threat with it, but a strong thunderstorm may develop with gusty winds, heavy heavy rain, and cloud to ground lightning. Another issue to be watchful over will be for isolated Flash Flooding. Already on this Monday, roads in Atlanta, TX and Texarkana were drastically flooded. Highs on Tuesday will be in the upper 80s, but that could again vary depending on Mother Nature’s placement of rain and storms.

Wednesday: looks to be our last overly wet and rainy day for the ArkLaTex. Be prepared with the rain gear through the day. Highs are in the upper 80s to low 90s with heat index values in the mid to upper 90s where drier weather sets up.

Thursday through Saturday, our rain chances will drop near zero. That means temperatures will be on the rise as well as the humidity. Our heat index values may try and reach back into Heat Advisory criteria by the end of the work week heading into the weekend.
