Happy Tuesday ArkLaTex. Some of us continue to deal with rain this afternoon while some may not have even seen a drop. Thankfully, the rain will be coming to an end soon heading into Thursday; however, hot temperatures and a potentially dangerous heat index are back in the forecast.

Overnight and into tomorrow morning for Wednesday more rain and a maybe a thunderstorm will greet us during the morning. Temperatures overnight will once again fall to the 70s under mostly cloudy skies.

Wednesday: Morning rain and storms cant be ruled out with another chance for widely scattered showers and storms during the heat of the day in the afternoon. Still, not expecting severe weather, but may see a strong storm with gusty winds. Otherwise, heavy downpours will occur any may need to fator in extra time while heading to work.

Thursday: Finally a dry day here in the ArkLaTex! More sunshine is also expected. Temperatures in the morning are back in the 70s, but it’ll warm up significantly during the afternoon with highs back in the mid 90s. Add in the humidity and the heat index values could be in the 100s near 105 or above.

This weekend, expect dry conditions once again with the humidity rising on up! Sunny skies with highs in the mid to upper 90s are what’s waiting for us this weekend with possible heat advisories as well.

We’ll keep you updated as we get closer to the weekend. Until then, have a wonderful day stay dry!
