SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – After a cold Saturday morning we have warmed into the 50s and low 60s this afternoon. A few areas will push 70 degrees Sunday, with the threat of possible heavy rain on the way next Thursday through Saturday.
For your Saturday night into Sunday morning, clear skies and light wind will allow us to cool quickly. Lows are expected to drop into the 30s in all areas with a brief freeze Sunday morning north of I-30.
The north wind kept us cool Saturday, but a returning south breeze Sunday will bring a 10-degree temperature jump with highs in the upper 60s and low 70s. You won’t have to worry about rain as we’ll see all-day sunshine Sunday.
Monday will bring another day of near 70 degree highs with increasing clouds ahead of our next cold front. This front may bring a few lightly scattered showers late Monday into early Tuesday morning. Any accumulations will be light and likely overnight. We will clear out quickly Tuesday with highs falling back into the 50s.
It’s looking like we could see a slow-system bring several days of rain to close out the upcoming week. Showers and thunderstorms will return to some areas Thursday, with rain and thunderstorms impacting much of the region Friday. Some of the ingredients will be there for a few strong thunderstorms so this will need to be monitored.
There is a lot of uncertainty with the rainfall amounts. The American (GFS) model ends most of the rain before we move into the weekend, and keeps accumulations in the 1 to 2-inch range. The European model keeps the system overhead Saturday leading to another day of rain and thunderstorms. It is showing accumulations over 3 inches over much of the region. Needless to say, if you have outdoor plans keep an eye on the late-week forecast.
