WEST MONROE, LA (KTVE/KARD) Happy Saturday! It was a wonderful day across the ArkLaMiss, with lots of sunshine and some clouds from time to time. Temperatures were able to reach the upper 60’s to lower 70’s today, and we stayed dry.

Speaking of our next system, it now looks like it will move in for the Wednesday timeframe. It will bring a scattered chance for showers and storms through the day. There is also a low potential for severe weather with this system. The Storm Prediction Center has outlined southern Arkansas, for now, for the risk of strong/severe storms. Since this system is a cutoff low, details are subject to changing rapidly, so make sure to stay updated with the latest forecast.
Once this system moves out, we dry out for the end of the week, into the weekend. This dry stretch could last a while, and being that we’re in our peak severe weather season, this is not a bad thing. Temperatures will also remain on the warmer side, in the lower to middle 80’s.
