Wednesday’s Weather Discussion

After the morning fog lifts out, you can expect a return of sunshine by the noon time hour. But, by this evening, I believe that we will be dealing with more clouds streaming in; this will all be ahead of our next system. We are under a very progressive pattern, with periods of rain and dry weather. Tonight, showers will become widespread; in-fact, as I type this discussion, there is a large area of rain developing over western Louisiana. All of that will spread in here shortly after dark. Earlier this morning, there was even a mix of precipitation over southern Arkansas; I don’t imagine much of that is reaching the ground. No worries of winter weather here, as temperatures are expected to stay well above freezing. By tomorrow, that system will be long gone, and here comes another one. Our second storm system will be here by Friday, when we could even deal with some strong to severe storms; highs will reach the middle 60s, with an 80% chance of rain and storms. We are going to have to keep a close eye on certain severe weather parameters to see if strong storms will be much of a threat. We will keep you posted on that!

There is not much cooler air behind Friday’s rainmaker, as highs will cool off into the lower 60s by Saturday, but we will continue a small chance of a shower in our forecast. There is a better chance of rain and storms for Sunday. Once that one leaves town, you can expect much colder weather to follow behind. Highs on Tuesday will drop into the low 50s, but by Wednesday, we may be dealing with the coldest air this season; highs will be in the low 40s. That forecasted high may actually be too warm, so be sure to stay tuned as we fine tune our forecast on the artic air invasion by next Wednesday. Be sure to check us out on the television today at 11 a.m. and tonight at 5, 6 and 10 p.m. for the latest on your forecast. Have a great day!
