(KSLA) -Happy Sunday everyone! As we go throughout the evening, expect more breezy conditions along with very warm temperatures for the evening hours. On average, we’re in the upper 30s but we’ll trade it out for the upper mid to upper 60s.

Early tomorrow morning temperatures will be mild but there wont be much if any fog to worry about as we did this morning. Expect clouds to build back in once again and make for another cloudy start to Monday with very warm high temperatures.

Christmas was a very warm day and record breaking for a few areas! Texarkana, TX had record highs of 80 degrees with 78 as the previous high set in 1922. Longview, TX broke the record with highs at 81 today with the record set in 2016 at 78 and lastly, DeQueen, AR broke records with highs at 82 with 78 the old record set in 1955.

Monday highs will top out in the mid to upper 70s under partly cloudy skies. It’ll be another windy windy day with breezes around 10-15mph. Overnight lows are once again dropping into the 60s.

Some small changes are looking to arrive just before the end of the year. Some rain will be back starting in the middle of next week. So far, I only have a 20% chance of rain Tuesday and a 30% chance Wednesday. The rain chances could increase as we get closer. This rain will help to lower temperatures a little, and will help the drought conditions we’re facing, but not by much. Temperatures Thursday and Friday are dropping into the low 70s and thats about it.

So far, there are trends showing that there will be rain for the first day of the new year with highs in the low 70s but after what may be a stronger front, temperatures will take a BIG drop potentially into the 40s and 50s by next Sunday.
