Happy Tuesday ! We’re in for another round of spotty showers and storms that will mainly be focused along the far southern half of the ArkLaTex.
Tuesday: Afternoon highs will be in the low 90s with a few places staying just shy of the 90 degree mark. Sky conditions are looking partly to mostly cloudy with sunshine in the mix. Factoring in the humidity, it’ll ‘feel’ closer to the upper 90s and low 100s. Winds today are out of the south around 5mph. Overnight tonight, temperatures will fall to the mid 70s.
Wednesday: Wednesday morning, shower and storms will be focused near the I-30 corridor and linger into the afternoon hours while possibly moving south into the I-20 corridor as well. Bye evening, the rain is expected to clear and leave us with partly cloudy skies. Heading out the door, temperatures in the morning will start in the low to mid 70s and eventually climb back to the upper 80s and low 90s for highs. Keep the rain gear apart of that morning checklist.
By Thursday, rain chances will slightly lower with some what of a repetitive pattern of showers and storms developing during the afternoon and leaving by the evening. Temperatures will stay in the low 90s for highs.
Late this week, a weak cold front, which are rare in the summer will move through the area and spark more showers and storms for the afternoon. Temperatures will still remain in the upper 80s and low 90s.
TROPICS: Potential Tropical Cyclone Nine heads for the leeward islands and Puerto Rico where Tropical Storm Warnings have already been issues. This storm may bring heavy, flooding rain and gusty winds to the islands and from there may make a run for Florida. There are still some uncertainties in the track, but areas in the path will want to keep an eye on the formation and movement of potentially what may become Tropical Storm isaias late tonight or Wednesday.
Have a great day!
