Happy Sunday ArkLaTex! A cloudy start for some, but more clear for others. Overall, I think we’ll have a warm and muggy day but not too oppressively hot.
Monday’s rain chances are not looking as impressive as Sunday’s. The morning begins dry and cloudy with temperatures back in the low to mid 70s. By late afternoon, a few showers and storms that will likely be more brief than anything will be possible. The eastern and southern half of the ArkLaTex may see a rain band from Tropical Storm Sally, but it may be too far to our east.
Speaking of, Tropical Storm Sally is now forecast to make landfall likely along the southeastern Louisiana coast as a category 2 Hurricane possible Monday evening or Tuesday morning. Once it approaches the coast it will slow down and increase the flooding threat along the coastline. For the ArkLaTex, Sally’s track will stay well off to our east. We likely wont see much of anything from Sally except lower rain chances and warm weather.
Rain chances will stay fairly low for the beginning of the work week, but may increase heading into latter half of the week. So far, Thursday looks to be the best chance for rain, but we’ll keep you updated to any changes as we get closer.
Have a great day!
