SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – A cold front will bring a chance of rain along and north of I-30 today in Oklahoma, northeast Texas, and some counties in southern Arkansas. The rest of us will enjoy a comfortable and dry day before cold air and rain return tomorrow.
This morning we are seeing scattered rain and thunderstorms ongoing north of I-30. There is no severe weather threat but any thunderstorms could bring lightning and brief heavy rainfall.
We could see a stray shower or storm impact Texarkana at some point, but most areas south of I-30 in Texas and Louisiana will remain dry until tomorrow.
Temperatures will remain pleasant with highs in the 70s in areas that stay dry, and in the upper 60s where we’ll continue to see the chance of scattered rainfall.
A cold front will move into the ArkLaTex tonight and tomorrow setting up a cold end to the week. Showers will increase across the northern ArkLaTex tonight with rain moving south into Texarkana in the morning, and to the remainder of the ArkLaTex during the afternoon and evening. Temperatures will likely fall into the 40s and 50s behind the rain north of I-20 midday tomorrow with highs in the 40s and low 50s Friday. Rainfall accumulations will be less than an inch in most areas. There is no severe weather threat.
We will sandwich in a very nice weekend between cold fronts as we’ll see plenty of sunshine and highs in the 60s. We’ll have to be on the lookout for a potential freeze in the northern ArkLaTex Saturday morning.
Another strong cold front will move in Monday bringing rainfall and another winter-like temperature drop early next week. This is a similar setup to tomorrow’s cold front, so the threat for severe weather is low.
