WEST MONROE, LA. – (10/27/21)

TODAY: Showers and storms will be the main focus for your Wednesday. Some storms will have the potential to be strong or severe with damaging winds up to 60 mph and an isolated threat for a tornado the primary concerns.

A level 2 slight risk remains in place for our southern parishes while two thirds of the ArkLaMiss are under a level 1 marginal risk.

LOOKING AHEAD: Thursday will be a bit dreary as cloud cover sticks with light drizzle and breezy winds at about 15-20 mph. Some cooler air will begin to filter in a winds return back out of the northwest, so expect highs in the lower 60s while lows overnight fall into the 50s.

Friday will be mostly cloudy, but cloud cover will start to gradually decrease throughout the afternoon and evening. Highs will top back into the the middle 60s with lows Friday night in the upper 40s.
