.SHORT TERM...Tonight through Sunday Night/

In wake of the cold front moving across North Louisiana and East 
Texas this afternoon, drier air will move into the Four State 
Region clearing out the remaining low level clouds as high 
pressure on the surface and aloft build into the region. High 
level moisture will spread into the area but will be thin and not 
allow the cold temperatures to dip as low as expected for Sunday 
night under less cloud cover. No rain is expected through the 
short term as dry weather is in store. Low temperatures overnight 
will range from near 40 North to the lower 50s South with slightly
cooler reading for Sunday night ranging from the upper 30s North 
to the upper 40s Southwest. Daytime high temperatures on Sunday 
will range from near 60 Northeast to the upper 60s Southwest. /06/


.LONG TERM.../Monday through Friday Night/ 

Surface high pressure stretching from the eastern seaboard to the 
Red River Valley combined with weak upper-level ridging aloft to 
maintain dry conditions across the region on Monday and Tuesday. 
Temperatures on both days to range from highs in the lower 60s to 
lows in the 40s. 

Gradual warming trend expected on Wednesday and Thursday as moisture 
and cloud-cover increase due to a weak disturbance in the Gulf of 
Mexico. Southwest flow aloft to maintain mostly cloudy skies with 
scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms each day. 

Northwest flow aloft to sweep moisture south and eastward late in 
the work week with skies gradually clearing from the northwest. 
Temperatures on Friday to range from highs in the upper 60s to lows 
in the 50s. /05/

Historical Weather And Climate Facts For Today

////////////////////////////
OCTOBER 20TH
HISTORIC WEATHER EVENTS
...1770...
An exceedingly great storm struck eastern New England causing extensive
coastal damage from Massachusetts to Maine, and the highest tide in 47
years. (David Ludlum)
...1983...
Remnants of Pacific Hurricane Tico caused extensive flooding in central and
south central Oklahoma. Oklahoma City set daily rainfall records with 1.45
inch on the 19th, and 6.28 inches on the 20th. (17th-21st) (The Weather
Channel)
...1987...
Cold arctic air invaded the Upper Midwest, and squalls in the Lake Superior
snowbelt produced heavy snow in eastern Ashland County and northern Iron
County of Wisconsin. Totals ranged up to 18 inches at Mellen. In the
western U.S., the record high of 69 degrees at Seattle WA was their
twenty-fifth of the year, their highest number of record highs for any
given year. Bakersfield CA reported a record 146 days in a row with daily
highs 80 degrees or above. (The National Weather Summary) (Storm Data)
...1988...
Unseasonably warm weather continued in the western U.S. In California,
afternoon highs of 96 degrees at Redding and Red Bluff were records for the
date. (The National Weather Summary)
...1989...
Forty-nine cities reported record low temperatures for the date as readings
dipped into the 20s and 30s across much of the south central and
southeastern U.S. Lows of 32 degrees at Lake Charles LA and 42 degrees at
Lakeland FL were records for October, and Little Rock AR reported their
earliest freeze of record. Snow blanketed the higher elevations of Georgia
and the Carolinas. Melbourne FL dipped to 47 degrees shortly before
midnight to surpass the record low established that morning. Showers and
thunderstorms brought heavy rain to parts of the northeastern U.S. Autumn
leaves on the ground clogged drains and ditches causing flooding. Up to
4.10 inches of rain soaked southern Vermont in three days. Flood waters
washed 600 feet of railroad track, resulting in a train derailment. (The
National Weather Summary)(Storm Data)
