TYLER, Texas — Can you believe it? September flew by and the start of October is tomorrow; but once again it will feel more like late August. Why? A stretched out area of high pressure will sit on top of Texas the remainder of this weekend before slowly breaking down and retreating to the desert southwest. While it's here, our high temperatures will top out in the low to mid-90s.
We are gaining confidence in a seasonally strong cold front arriving by the middle of next week. This front will drop highs into the mid to low 80s and possibly even the 70s by the end of next weekend. Morning lows in parts of East Texas will also drop into the 50s- dare we call this, sweater weather?
Here's your forecast.
Sunday starts off warm and dry with morning temperatures in the low 70s, quickly warming into the upper 80s by noon. The sky will be dotted with a few more clouds than we saw on Saturday. This could result in slightly cooler afternoon highs in the low to mid-90s. A nice summer-like breeze from the East will help to bring a little relief by late afternoon and early evening. Even Sunday night will remain seasonably warm, in the lower 70s, and skies will stay clear and moonlit.
Monday will almost be a copy and paste type of day from Sunday. Morning temperatures will start in the lower 70s, but with the little cloud cover we will have through the morning, temperatures will quickly be able to climb to the mid 80s. By the afternoon, we will once again have a summer-like feel to our day, with sunshine and highs in the mid 90s. Although we will be dry and hot, our fall-like weather is quickly approaching!
