(4/11/2019) Good Thursday morning! It’s a mild start to the day with temperatures in the mid 60’s as you head out of the house. We’re going to warm up into the 80’s again this afternoon and eventually see some rain chances in the forecast this afternoon through the evening and early overnight hours. Clouds will increase into the afternoon with a brisk wind, 15-20 mph from the southwest. Expect showers to develop along a passing cold front late this afternoon and the rain will move east through the evening and early overnight hours. A few rumbles of thunder are possible but nothing severe.
We will see the rain clear after midnight with clearing skies and cooling temps, dropping back into the 50’s overnight.
Tomorrow is going to be a pleasant day. High temperatures will climb into the mid 70’s with partly cloudy skies and low rain chances for the evening. Winds will be from the southeast.
We’re looking at our next threat for severe weather back in the forecast this Saturday.
All of northern Louisiana and southern Arkansas are under an enhanced risk for severe weather on Saturday. We’re looking at all modes of severe weather likely, including a few tornadoes. This is relatively high confidence for 3 days out, with time for upgrades/changes.
With LOTS of outdoor things going on this weekend including the Franklin Parish Catfish Festival and some local college spring games, be sure to stay weather aware if you’re planning on heading out anywhere Saturday. You’ll want multiple ways to receive watches and warnings. You can download our KTVE/KARD Weather App to receive new weather alerts straight to your phone.
