Hot and dry to start the week

Happy Sunday ArkLaTex! We’re back on schedule with our usual hot and steamy, dry days in August. The humidity is back, but still low enough to keep us away from heat advisories.

Sunday: This evening, temperatures will stay hang on in the low 90s to upper 80s under mostly clear skies, but we will have a few cumulus clouds up there! Overnight, calm forecast with temperatures falling into the mid 70s.

Monday will be H-O-T like the weekend! Highs are back in the mid 90s with rain chances slim to none. This pattern of hot and dry weather will stick around for the beginning of the work week. Afternoon rain chances look slim to none so consider yourself lucky if you do see a shower or storm. Heat index values will be back in the 100s where some areas could reach up to 105.

Tuesday we may see slightly better rain chances for the I-30 corridor, however the rain is looking fairly light and not as widespread. Highs are back in the mid 90s with triple digit heat index values sticking around.

Tropics: A disturbance in the Atlantic has a 50% chance of becoming our next named storm within the next 5 days. It is very far out so only time will tell what will happen. We’ll keep you up to date!

Have a great Sunday!
