There is a deep, broad area of High Pressure that is continuing to extend over the plains and much of the Eastern half of the nation. An upper-level disturbance continues to move East, off the Atlantic coast of the SE U.S. This Low Pressure Area could redevelop before moving Northward.

The extensive ridge of High Pressure that is anchored over much of the Nation will not break down for a couple of days. As our weather remains under the influence of this feature, we will continue to see clear skies, below average temperatures and low rain chances through the end of the week. The center to this ridge is located over ArkLaTex and will meander for the next couple of days. Models suggest that our next weather-maker will move through early next week. It is this front that will gradually break down the current High Pressure ridge. The closer the center of this high gets to our area, we will see wind speeds drop and become variable.
Our region will remain under the influence of this High for the next several days. That means Mostly Sunny skies, Seasonably Cold Temperatures and Near Freezing Overnight Lows.
Conditions will begin to return to average toward the weekend.
For the rest of the day,
Expect to see sunny skies, coupled with seasonably cool conditions and a light to moderate wind out of the North and NE, becoming breezy at times. Temperatures will top out through the lower 60's. Average temperatures for this time of the year are 46/70. So, we are about 6-12 degrees cooler than normal, throughout the day.
Overnight, we will see temperatures drop well into the 30's with a light and variable wind and clear skies.
Near freezing temperatures can expected throughout parts of the viewing area, especially in low lying areas.
For the rest of the 7day planner
This deep ridge of high pressure will continue to build and maintain control of our forecast. Through the later part of the week, we will see sunny skies and rain chances off the board. Temperatures will drop into the 30's followed by lower 40's, this weekend, as a gradual warming trend sets up with increasing clouds and rising rain chances, come the beginning of the work week. Slight rain chances will return at the end of the 7day planner.
