Happy Wednesday ArkLaTex! Another mostly dry and toasty summer day with oppressive humidity but relief is on the way this Friday as another rare summer cold front swings through the area. This will help the 4th of July weekend be that much more bearable for any outdoor activities.

Through the overnight hours, we will remain mostly clear to partly cloudy. There should not be any rain, so we’ll stay nice and dry all night. Temperatures will cool down to the mid 70s, so it will be a little muggy to kick off our Thursday.

Thursday: Mornings are mild once again in the 70s and dry. During the afternoon highs will climb into the low 90s with very humid weather. Isolated showers and storms may pop-up during the afternoon but better chances are popping up for the I-30 corridor during the later afternoon and pushing near I-20 during the evening. Isolated heavy downpours and gusty thunderstorms are possible.

Friday our cold front moves in and there may be rain for some during the morning commute. Rain chances will be promising during the day based on how the front pushes south. Highs on Friday are only in the upper 80s!

Independence Day Weekend is looking mostly dry with low rain chances and a true treat with temperatures in the upper 80s! Plus the humidity will be a bit lower, so it will feel fantastic! This is perfect for any back yard barbeques taking place over the weekend.

TROPICS: We now have Potential Tropical Cyclone Five in the Atlantic. This is expected to become Elsa as early as tonight. While the storm moves generally west, it is not expected to reach hurricane status as of now. This will also be heading towards the gulf. We will be your First Alert as this storm evolves. Right now, there is no threat.

Have a great rest of the week!
