So as you are heading out the door this morning make sure you dress warmly as we are dealing with some chilly temperatures to start the week. Temperatures are down in the 30s this morning and won’t be moving up all that much today with highs likely in the mid-40s to go along with some hit and miss shower activity. This will be due to an upper level low that will be moving through the deep south. There is even the slight chance that a couple of wet snow flakes could mix in across the northern tier of ArkLaTex early today.

After the cold and gloomy conditions this morning our weather will be trending up through the rest of the work week. Temperatures will start to rebound Tuesday with highs back in the 50s along with a return to sunshine. By Wednesday and continuing through the rest of the work week our temperatures will be moving above average along with more sunshine and some high cloud cover. 70s will be very likely by the time we get to Christmas Eve so don’t hold out much hope for a white Christmas.

Heading into your Christmas weekend we are tracking more warm weather on tap for the ArkLaTex. As a cold front stalls to our north we are tracking likely 70s for highs on Christmas with perhaps some slightly cooler weather across the northern tier of the ArkLaTex. Sunday will likely bring even more warm weather with highs again approaching the 80 degree mark.

So while you have a to deal with some cold weather this morning it won’t be sticking around for very long. Have a great Monday.
