SHREVEPORT, Louisiana - The pattern of scattered daily thunderstorms has kept temperatures at or below normal throughout the month will dry up this week bringing what will perhaps be our hottest stretch of the summer thus far.
For Sunday night into Monday morning, a few scattered rain showers and isolated thunderstorms may persist along a frontal boundary draped across Texas and Louisiana. Sunrise temperatures will be in the mid 70s under partly cloudy skies and perhaps patchy fog for a few hours. As we move through the late morning and early afternoon there will be mostly sunny skies which will bring afternoon highs in the low to mid 90s. The warmest air may be across Arkansas/Oklahoma where rain chances will be lower during the day.
A chance of scattered thunderstorms will be highest Monday afternoon and evening across Texas and Louisiana, but most areas throughout the ArkLaTex will stay dry.
(Future clouds/radar 2 p.m. Monday showing isolated rainfall chances):
Beyond Monday high pressure will begin to build overhead limiting our chances for rain and thunderstorms to only sea breeze activity south of I-20. Expect high temperatures to rise into the mid and perhaps upper 90s much of the week in response to the lack of rain and clouds.
