Summer heat returns Friday, next cold front arrives late this weekend.

SHREVEPORT, Louisiana - High pressure is now moving east of the ArkLaTex allowing a south wind to return which will result in a quick trip back to summer over the next 2 days.

Thursday night into Friday morning will be comfortable with lows falling into the low and mid 60s in most areas under clear skies.

As we move through the day on Friday, the south wind will push humidity and temperatures upwards, and highs will likely be in the upper 80s and low 90s. Skies will be mostly sunny, but the increase in humidity will lead to a few mid level clouds during the warm afternoon and evening hours.

For the weekend, we may push record high temperatures on Sunday as we will be in the low 90s with some areas possibly reaching the mid 90s under mostly sunny skies. By Saturday evening clouds will begin to increase ahead of our next cold front.

The front will move into the northern ArkLaTex during the morning hours bringing a few rain showers and otherwise mostly cloudy skies. As the front moves south during the day we aren't expecting much rain to develop. Highs will be in the 80s ahead of the front with a temperature drop occurring late in the day in some areas.

Cooler air is expected to take over Monday as highs will be in the 70s/low 80s Monday through at least Wednesday, with morning lows in teh 40s and 50s.

Columbia County, Arkansas, and Red River Parish, Louisiana were added to the growing list of burn bans on Thursday.
