As of Saturday night, a cold front has been located just outside of the ArkLaTex in northern Texas and Oklahoma. This front separates dry air from humidity, and we’re still in the wetland that fuels the scattered thunderstorms that develop overhead. Expect a few quick showers and thunderstorms to continue overnight. Severe weather is not expected, but storms will bring lightning, brief heavy downpours and gusty winds. Overnight lows will be in the upper 60s and 70s.
The front is expected to progress steadily in the ArkLaTex at sunrise, with most areas awakening to some cloud cover, but rain will have stopped in most areas by sunrise. Dry air will fall behind this front, bringing clear skies by mid to late morning in most areas. The exception will be a few locations south of I-20 in northwest Louisiana where the front will be located in the early afternoon. There is a low risk of showers or thunderstorms mainly in the parishes of Rivière Rouge, Natchitoches, Sabine, Bienville and De Soto.
The front will bring in plenty of sun during the afternoon hours, which will keep temperatures warm, in the mid-80s on Sunday afternoon. The dry air will start to lower the humidity at the end of the day, but we won’t feel a significant drop in humidity until Monday morning.
The drop in humidity will allow us to have good weather next week as we oscillate between cool mornings and warm but pleasant afternoons. The low temperatures throughout the week will be in the 50s and 60s, so we will have that pleasant feeling of freshness every morning. Afternoons will be hot and mid-80s every afternoon Monday through Thursday. The low humidity will allow you to cool down easily and stay comfortable.
A returning southerly wind towards the end of the week will bring heat and humidity to close the week and next weekend with highs reaching 90 degrees by Saturday. No rain on the horizon from Monday to next Saturday.
