One model’s depiction of rain POTENTIAL

The remnants of Barry will gradually give way to upper-level high pressure for the rest of the week. That means that we will settle back into a rather typical weather pattern. Look for daytime highs to stay pretty close to normal in the low to mid-90s. Overnight lows will be several degrees above normal in the middle 70s. The upper ridge may weaken a touch by the beginning of next week. They may allow the chance for the hit or miss afternoon storm to return to the forecast by next Monday.

Weather Fact: The high temperature in Shreveport yesterday was 80 degrees. This tied a record for the coolest high temperature ever recorded on July 14th. In Texarkana, the high was only 74. This broke the lowest high temperature record of 77 degrees set back in 1990.

Average high/low temperatures for today’s date: 93/73.
