SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – It is going to be a cool and cloudy January day, with clouds lingering through the end of the week ahead of what will be a spectacular weekend.
An upper-level low is now directly overhead, and it’s pulling in a few light rain showers north of I-20. There is a lot of sites reporting light mist and drizzle across the region, and that will remain a possibility through the morning hours.
Even after the rain/drizzle comes to an end we will likely stay overcast throughout the day and into tonight.
Temperatures will stay on the cool side as we’ll be in the 40s this morning, with highs in the low to mid-50s this afternoon.
The mostly cloudy to overcast pattern continues tonight and tomorrow with little chance for any rain during this time period.
Our next upper-level disturbance will drift through Thursday night into Friday. It may trigger a few light rain showers or drizzle with accumulations expected to be less than a tenth of an inch.
A gorgeous weekend is expected with sunshine Saturday and highs near 60 degrees. It will partly cloudy Sunday with a high near 70.
Our next cold front looks to impact the region Monday into Tuesday. This front will bring a chance of scattered thunderstorms and the ingredients may be in place to see a few strong/severe storms. Nothing is set in stone yet, but be sure to check for updates for the remainder of the week.
