WEST MONROE, La. — (4/11/2019) Scattered showers have developed along a cold front that will continue eastward through the ArkLaMiss tonight. The front will bring a brief cooldown through the day on Friday.
That same front will drift northward as a warm front on Saturday morning. This will help establish a very favorable environment for severe storms through the day. A new upper-level storm system will dig in through the early afternoon, prompting the potential of a severe weather outbreak for much of the southern United States.
All modes of severe weather will be possible through most of the day on Saturday, including the risk for tornadoes (some could be strong to violent).
Residents are strongly urged to stay alert to rapidly changing weather conditions through the day, have a severe weather plan, and be prepared to execute that plan at a moment’s notice.
Skies will clear slowly through the day on Sunday, with a quick warm up through early next week. Another potential severe weather threat is possible by the middle of next week.
