Scattered wet weather through the week
(KSLA) - We’re settling into a typical summer pattern across the ArkLaTex with no extremes in the weather expected. Look for hot, humid days, warm & muggy nights, and a daily chance for a few showers and storms.
Wednesday looks mostly copy/paste from Tuesday with temperatures beginning in the 70s once again. Afternoon highs will once again climb to the upper 80s to low 90s area wide with more scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms. These will bring heavy downpours but thankfully wont last too long. No severe weather is expected. Some of the showers and storms will stick around for the afternoon commute and may linger through mid-evening. Overnight temperatures are back in the low 70s.
Thursday, yet another day with some scattered rain during the afternoon hours. Highs are sticking to the low 90s under partly cloudy skies. Friday, rain chance may begin to back off, but for now we’ll keep around a 30% chance but highs are back to the low 90s.
The weekend is looking a little drier and hotter, but still some isolated showers and storms can be expected with temperatures heating back into the mid 90s.
TROPICS: Hurricane Elsa is in the Gulf of Mexico and is forecast to make landfall in Florida on Wednesday. Already, the storm is bringing rain and wind to parts of the state. Once inland, Elsa will then weaken as it moves over Georgia and the Carolinas. No impacts to the ArkLaTex and not much else happening in the Atlantic right now.
Have a good night!
