A very warm afternoon for most of the ArkLaTex. Temperatures are into the 70s and 80s. The only exception is the cooler temperatures in the northern parts of the region. Temperatures are in the 50s. Tonight, our attention turns to the showers and thunderstorms to develop after midnight.
As the cold front advances in the warm sector, showers and storms will begin to develop. The severe weather threat will be very low for areas north of Shreveport. SPC did outline a severe weather risk for the southern parts of the region. With the current timing of storms, I think the best opportunity for stronger to severe storms will be south of Shreveport. If we seeing any severe storms, the main threats will be damaging winds, hail, and an isolated tornado or two. The storms will move out of the ArkLaTex by Monday afternoon.
Following the storms, we will see colder temperatures for Tuesday and Wednesday. Highs will drop back into the 50s. Lows into the 20s and 30s. Our next chance for rain will come on Friday.
