WEST MONROE, La - We can expect cool conditions to continue throughout the afternoon today through the overnight hours. Overnight lows are expected to dip to the mid 20's with the wind chill being in the upper teens. No advisories, watches, or warnings are in effect for the ArkLaMiss but go ahead and bring those outdoor pets and plants indoors.
Tomorrow, we are expecting temperatures to warm up to the low 40's under mostly sunny skies and winds out of the northeast at about 5-10 MPH.
For Martin Luther King Jr. Day, expect temperatures to warm up to the low to mid 50's with winds out of the south at about 5-10 MPH under mostly sunny skies, but enjoy this while you can because a cold front will swing through Monday night with enough moisture for some precipitation.
Models are agreeing on the potential for wintry precipitation, like snow, for Monday night through Tuesday evening. This is still a ways away, but temperatures are going to be below freezing Tuesday, the cold front is looking to provide enough moisture, and that could lead to an end result of wintry precipitation.
The most important thing we are looking after Monday is below to near freezing temperatures for Tuesday and Wednesday. By Thursday, we could see temperatures warming up near the low 40's but frigid cool air is on the way and will be here for most of the week before a warm up for the next weekend.
