The final day of October has arrived and as we get set to kickoff a new month, we’re going to be talking about more wet weather. First off, dry weather will continue for today and if you’re heading to the big race at Talladega, look for lots of sunshine and highs in the 70s. Temperatures will be falling into the 60s throughout the early evening hours so it won’t feel too bad for the trick-or-treaters tonight.
Changes will begin tomorrow as a wave of low pressure moves into northeast Texas. This wave of low pressure will spread clouds our way late tomorrow, with highs nearing the 80-degree mark. Tomorrow night the clouds will thicken with a good chance of rain on Election Tuesday. There may be a thunderstorm in the mix on Tuesday; however, I don’t see a major severe weather threat. Temperatures will be much cooler as low pressure passes to our south during the Tuesday/Wednesday time frame. We will have a good chance of rain, with highs only reaching the 60s. This system should depart the region early Thursday, with some lingering clouds as an upper air trough digs into the region. This will open the gate to some more cold air, with highs struggling to reach 61-degrees on Friday.
It is going to become a bit windy as the colder air settles in late in the week. There is a good chance we will have a light freeze across the area Saturday morning, with highs only in the 50s. Next Sunday will also start off on a cold note, with lows near the freezing point.
