Rain chances are increasing and the summer heat is decreasing

Weather

SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – This week’s August heatwave is getting ready to come to an end. Highs will warm into the middle and upper 90s. A Heat Advisory was originally issued for Friday on Thursday. Today, the National Weather Service canceled the advisory as dewpoint values will just be low enough not to meet the criteria. A few isolated showers and storms will be possible too. Beginning Saturday, our weather pattern will change.

Currently, a cold front is producing showers and thunderstorms over the Midwest. The cold front will end the heatwave and increase rain chances for the weekend. In addition, winds will change from the southwest to the northeast. Although rain chances will be around for the weekend, I am not expecting a washout for the weekend. Highs will be in the upper 80s and lower 90s. Decent rain chances will continue into the early parts of next week.

Highs for Friday

In the tropics, Tropical Depression Fred is slowly trying to become better organized in the Atlantic. As Fred splits Cuba and the Bahamas, it is expected to enter the eastern Gulf of Mexico where it will become stronger. Fred will not be an issue for the ArkLaTex. Following Fred, we are watching Invest 95-L in the Atlantic. It has a high chance of development as it will follow a path similar to Fred.
