Tonight we see partly cloudy skies with lows falling into the upper 20s.

Temperatures Friday morning will be pretty close to freezing, and if we get some evaporational cooling, some places could drop into the 28- to 32-degree range, meaning there could be some impact for the morning commute. Look for the clouds to dissipate over most of the area Thursday night. There were some wind gusts however between 30 and 40 miles per hour. Highs are mainly in the mid-40s but, with breezes picking up from the west, should feel even colder.

The first of 2 offshore storms could brush CT with snow showers or a wintry mix Friday night. High temperatures Thursday should be in the mid 40s, but one of those reinforcing shots of cold air should settle in for Friday leading to highs not getting out of the 30s for many. If temperatures for the next 3 days fail to climb higher than 40, it will be the first consecutive 3-day period to do that since January 13, 14, and 15 of 2017. Most of the really cold air will stay to our northeast and the only change we should see is a shift in the wind direction. Overnight lows in the week ahead will mainly be in the 30s.

SNOW POTENTIAL INDEXA daily assessment of the potential for at least 1 inch of snow in the next week, on a 0-10 scale. It will not bring any rain, but it will make us even colder than we already are.

Looking likely that most of the Arklatex could stay totally dry during the next seven days.


1/10 (→): A very light snow band remains just a remote possibility near and east of city Friday night as moisture is in short supply. A clipper system could bring light snow accumulations this weekend.

After a windy Wednesday, breezy conditions are expected to stick around into the weekend.

Today with plenty of sunshine highs will only reach the low-mid 30s.
